Soft Sour Cream Cookies

  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

Preparation -
In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter or margerine with the sugars and the lightly beaten eggs. Beat for about 2 minutes with an electric mixer at medium speed. Add the sour cream and vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and beat for another minute. Drop by heaping teaspoons full onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies spring back when lightly pressed in the centers.

Cool the cookies completely, then spread a small amount of creamy vanilla frosting on top. For holiday cookies, tint the frosting with red and green food coloring, or sprinkle with a small amount of flaked, tinted coconut on top, or place a marachino cherry on top.
