Another recipe I found while looking through my grandmothers note book. These are cake like and not too sweet. I added cookie icing and sprinkles Because my family would prefer their cookies have "stuff in them or on them".
Very good with a cup of coffee or tea.

How to Make Grandma Lee's Sour Cream Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. set aside
  2. cream brown sugar and shortening,
    add sour cream and the egg and beat until well incorporated.
    add the flour mixture and beat until well blended
  3. drop by spoonfuls on to cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until light brown in color
  4. ....... The directions were not included in her recipe so I did it the way I normally would. also there was no measurement for the salt or vanilla so put in what my other cookie recipes called for. I do add more vanilla to anything I bake because I love it so I wrote 1 tsp but I used 3 tsp :-) I also gave the cookie sheets a very light spray of non stick spray.
  5. cookie icing: mix butter, powdered sugar and vanilla together add hot water a Tsp at a time until the right consistency. add a few drops of food coloring if desired. spread over cooled cookies.
    This icing hardens a little and adds a very light crunch,
