I was never a huge sugar cookie fan until I went to a local bakery and bit into one of their frosted sugar cookies. It had a fudgy texture that complimented the harder frosting and sprinkles on top. So good! I've been on a hunt for such a cookie since. I haven't found the frosting yet, but here's a great cookie that delivers on texture and taste!

Directions

  1. Cream shortening, butter, sugar; add eggs, lemon, vanilla and sour cream.
  2. Mix till creamy; add sifted dry ingredients: salt, soda, and flour.
  3. Chill for several hours or overnight. Roll into balls and flatten with bottom of sugar coated glass.
  4. Bake at 350°F just until the edges start turning color. Time will vary depending on how large and thick you made your cookies. It is important not to overbake if you want the texture to remain chewy and soft.
