  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla and sour cream. Gradually mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Cover or wrap dough and chill overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 1/2 inches apart onto cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

This sugar cookie is what the description claims it is. It is soft, puffs up, and has cake-like texture. I am giving it a five because I have tried over six different recipes in attempt to find one that would produce a puffy cookie similiar to the big thick sugar cookies commonly sold at grocercy store bakeries. While this cookie is a little lighter than the bakery cookie, it is very close. Also, the dough rolled out fine (it sat 2 hours in the freezer and I used plenty of flour to roll it out). After cutting out my cookies, I placed them in the freezer for an additional 7 minutes. They held their shape beautifully and had optimal height. Note: I did decrease the sour cream from 2 cups to 1 2/3 cups.

I've been looking for years for a recipe that comes close to one that my best friend's mom had when we were kids....and I finally found one! These cookies are great! Not for those who want a crisp hard cookie. These are soft and fluffy. Yes, the dough was a bit sticky, but I just made sure I had enough extra flour when rolling them out. I also used only 1 2/3 c sour cream. I made them a little thick, so that the kids could decorate them a little easier, and had to bake them a minute or two longer. This will be a treasured treat in our family!

This recipe is GREAT! I made it for my son's 2nd birthday party as favors (Elmo cookies) and I can't even tell you how many people have gotten the recipe from me for these cookies. They are incredible! I agree with the other review that they are like those delicious bakery cookies. I can't get enough of them!
