My mom used to make these cookies for every holiday. They are so good, you do not even need the frosting on them! Which can actually be a problem, the kids feel free to just grab them as I am making them!
This is all you need! So simple!
5 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups butter flavored crisco
1 cup sour cream
2 tsp vanilla
Mix crisco, sugar together. Add eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, sour cream, baking powder, baking soda. Blend these well. Add flour one cup at a time and mix well in between each.
Flour a rolling surface, I roll out about 1/3 of the dough at a time. It is easier to handle in small amounts. Mix with more flour until no longer sticky. Roll out to 1 inch thickness. Cut out with whatever cookie cutter you want.
Bake at 350* for 10 minutes.
On the subject of baking. I need to figure out another means of storage for my recipes! I can not even close the lid and there are printed off recipes that are folded up underneath my box!
