When I first tasted these cookies, I was around 14 yrs old or so. I asked my mother, "Where have these been all my life?!" She laughed out loud. She left her cook book in AZ when she and Dad were snow birds. I found it couple yrs later. She is 85 now and came to visit me in Apache Junction for one whole month! Bless her heart for leaving her cookbook here! (Even though my sister who came too didnt want her to, haha!) I told her, "you get mom, I get her cookbook. you have the better deal!"

How to Make Aunt Edith's Sour Cream Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Well, this was in my mom's cookbook, but without directions! I will try to see if I can find similar recipes, as I just called her and she cannot remember the particulars. :( Stay tuned but maybe some of you can figure it out. It said at the bottom: rolled and salt whatever that means. Okay! I found another recipe that sparked my memory and so see the next comment. (she added another egg though)
  2. 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2Cream sugar and shortening together.
    3Add beaten eggs.
    4Sift dry ingredients together.
    5Add dry ingredients alternately with sour cream to the sugar mixture.
    6Stir in vanilla.
    7Pat on a cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until they have JUST a touch of color.
