Great American Cookie Sugar Cookies
- Cream shortening, butter and sugar. Add eggs, lemon, vanilla and sour cream. Mix until well combined and smooth. Add sifted dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
- Chill for several hours or overnight. Roll into balls and flatten with bottom of sugar coated glass or roll out and cut into shapes.
- Bake at 350 degrees F just until the edges start turning color (7-10 minutes). Time will vary depending on how large and thick you made your cookies. It is important not to over-bake if you want the texture to remain chewy and soft. Frost and decorate as desired.
