Mrs. Hamilton was my daughter's 1st grade teacher. She'd make these for special occasions like end of year party, Halloween party, etc. It is very good - sour cream, who would have thought?

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

(Move top cookie sheet to bottom, move bottom cookie sheet to top AND turn each cookie sheet so the front edge [nearest the oven door] of the sheet is turned to the back of the oven.)

Cool cookies for 2 minutes on sheet; move to cooling rack to cool completely.
