Directions

  1. Sift flour into large mixing bowl. Resift with salt, soda, baking powder and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, cream the butter or margarine with sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix well. Add butter mixture to dry ingredients alternately with sour cream, mixing until smooth after each addition. Add vanilla. Wrap dough in waxed paper and chill until firm enough to roll, about 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F 150 degrees C. Roll dough on floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut with large cookie cutter; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

I have been making this since 2002 and it is one of my family & friend's favorites. Have no problem with too much or too little flour and freeze half for later! Make them at Easter, Christmas and now Halloween! Yum!

I gave this recipe one star only because I could not rate it any lower. The dough is so sticky I couldn't get it off my hands. It tasted so bad we threw it away instead of waste more time baking it.

The cookies were delicious- exceptionally sweet and just the right combination of crispiness and gooeyness. I used cookie cutters to punch out shapes in the dough and that worked out very easily. However, I would suggest either halving or scaling the recipe because it became an all-day event with never-ending leftovers!
