DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together sugar, shortening, sour cream and eggs.
  • Then stir into mixture the baking soda, nutmeg, vanilla, salt and cream of tartar. Do not add flour just yet.
  • Chill mixture 1-24 hours.
  • Gradually add flour to chilled mixture until dough is stiff enough to roll for cut-out cookies.
  • On a generously floured work surface, roll out dough a little at a time with a rolling pin dusted with flour until 1/2-inch thick.
  • Use flour-dipped cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes. Place cut-outs onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, making sure to space cookies two inches apart.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until tops of cookies are no longer shiny, and bottoms are lightly browned.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • Decorate with icing of your choice (optional) and store in an air-tight container.
