Sour Cream Cut Out Cookies

Image Courtesy of
These cookies are one of my favorite Holiday Cookies, they are not as sweet as the traditional "Sugar Cookie" so they work great to frost and decorate!

1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Cup Shortening
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Sour Cream
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
6 Cups of Flour (approximate)

Cream together the sugar and shortening, add the eggs and vanilla.  Mix well after adding.
Then add the sour cream, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Add the flour gradually (dough will be stiff) until just pliable enough to be able to roll out and cut easily.

Roll out about 1/4 inch thick onto floured surface and use cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes.  Place on lightly greased cookie sheet or parchment paper.  Decorate with colored sugars if you do not want to frost.  Bake in a 350 - 375 degree oven for approximately 8 -12 minutes.  Cool completely and decorate with frosting or royal icing.
