Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 C butter
1 C sour cream
2 tsp vanilla
5 C flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs, sour cream and vanilla, beat well. Mix in dry ingredients.
Chill 2 hours (this is important, otherwise they will be too soft to work)
Roll 1/4 inch thick, use plenty of flour.
Bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes. They are done if you touch one and it doesn’t leave an impression. They will still be white.
Let cool for just a minute then remove to cooling rack.
From a relief society cookbook published by the South Ogden 39th ward in the 80's. The cookbook is long gone, but this recipe is still a family favorite.
