Yeah for Cookie Day

Today is National Cookie Day, so I wanted to share an old family recipe.  These are great holiday cookies.

Sour Cream Cookies                                  Grandma Treyman
1/2 cup Shortening (part butter)
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp Soda
1 Egg
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
2-2/3 cup Flour
1/2 cup Sour Cream

Instructions:  Mix shortening, sugar, egg and vanilla.  Mix dry ingredients, add alternately with sour cream.  Divide dough.  Roll out 1/4" thick on well-floured pastry cloth.  Cut with 2" cutter, place on greased cookie sheet, sprinkle with sugar.  Bake at 425⁰ for 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned.  Makes 4 dozen.
