This recipe is almost 100 years old. My Mother's Great Granny's recipe. The cookies are soft and very tasty. I always make up a few batches for the holidays, and when I present them, I always get, "I love these cookies!"
Cream together butter and sugar. Add sour cream, baking soda, eggs, vanilla and salt. Gradually add flour until it can be rolled and cut. Add a little more flour of needed.
Roll out on a lightly floured board and cut with cookie cutters of your choice. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 mins or until edges are slightly browned. A butter cream frosting tastes great on these. You can also decorated with a royal icing too..Heck just about any kind of frosting tastes good on these cookies. Enjoy
