  1. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar. Beat in the eggs, vanilla and sour cream. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg, stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Dough will be light and sticky. Cover or wrap dough and chill overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, until cookies turn a very light brown. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.

I used this recipe to bake cookies for some friends and they were a huge hit! The cookies kept a great shape after baking and they stayed soft for several days (until they were all eaten ;). T...

I loved these cookies!! They're REALLY good when you roll the cookies out thick. They reminded me of the Christmas cookies my family made when I was a kid.

I had misplaced my recipe for sugar cookies with sour cream. I think I have found a new family favorite. YUM! This is a tender, sweet with a hint of nutmeg cookie. Thank you!

I thought these cookies were awesome. They need a lot of frosting for flavor. They are very fluffy and soft. Easy to work with.

I hadn't had nutmeg in sugar cookies before, and I didn't particularly like it. I wouldn't try making the cookies without it, though, because they would probably be really bland like so many so...
