Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is my favorite for sugar cookies. My mom received it from a teacher she worked with (Dixie Daniel), and it's been a favorite in our family ever since.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

2 2/3 cups four
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg


Blend shortening, sugar, egg and vanilla thoroughly

Mix the dry ingredients into the dough alternately with 1/2 cup of sour cream.

Roll 1/4 in. think on well floured board.

Cut with cookie cutters and place on a greased baking sheet.

Sprinkle with sugar.
