The recipe for these great cookies is credited to The Crown Room, the employee cafeteria at Hallmark Cards, in Kansas City. These cookies are soft and more cake-like than typical cookies and have great flavor.
- Place margarine and 1 3/4 cups sugar in large mixing bowl; beat with electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat 1 to 2 minutes more.
- In a separate bowl, stir together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Add dry ingredients alternately with sour cream to creamed mixture. Mix 2 minutes or until dough is smooth. Chill dough for 30 minutes. Dough will be very soft, but resist the temptation to add more flour.
- Preheat oven to 350. Shape tablespoonsful of dough into balls. Combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll cookie balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture, then place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Nice & not too sweet. The flavor is very much like biscotti, but the texture is cake-like. These taste perfect warm with a cup of coffee. (Changed my rating to 5 brilliant stars because these taste even better cooled down the next day and I can't stop eating them).
