DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together:
  • Shortening, granular sugar & eggs.
  • Stir in:
  • Sour cream and vanilla.
  • Sift together & stir in: (an electric mixer may be used).
  • Flour, soda, baing powder and salt until well mixed.
  • Chill in refridgerator for at least 1 hour.
  • Drop rounded spoonfuls about 2" apart on parchment paper lined cookie sheets (trust me, this is crucial) Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or, when touched lightly with finger, almost no imprint remains.
  • Icing: (Icing lovers may want to double, I recomend it!).
  • While cookies are cooling, melt butter and boil until golden brown, but not dark brown!
  • Remove from stovetop.
  • Blend in powdered sugar gradually.
  • Stir in vanilla and 1-2 tbsp of hot tap water until icing is smooth and creamy looking. Spread on cookies with butter knife.
  • **You may want to use different food colorings to suit the holiday/occation**.
