Sour Cream Cookies

Recipe from Sheryll Meldrum

Valentine's Day is coming up and these are the perfect cookies to send to your valentines.  One year Maryn and I made these and gave one to a boy in her church class and when she gave him the cookie he spun around with a smile on his face.  It was cute!  I love these cookies and they taste really good with cream cheese frosting on top.  The other thing I like about this recipe is you don't have to refrigerate the dough.  If you have trouble with the cookie cutters sticking have a little bowl of flour handy to dip the cutter in before you cut out the cookies.  The secret ingredient that makes these cookies so flavorful is nutmeg.

Sour Cream Cookies

1 cup sugar
¼ cup shortening
¼ cup butter or margarine-softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
2 2/3 cup flour
½ cups sour cream
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg

Mix sugar, shortening, margarine, vanilla and egg.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Divide dough into three equal parts.  Roll each ¼ on lightly floured board.  Cut with 2 inch cookie cutter.  Sprinkle with sugar put on un-greased cookie sheet.  Bake until no indentation remains when touched.

Baking time 6 minutes at 425°
