Favorite traditional holiday cookie!
1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Prepare 2 cookie sheets by lining them with parchment paper.
2. In the bowl of your stand mixer beat shortening and sugar. Add in egg and mix.
3. In a separate small bowl dissolve baking soda into the sour cream.
4. Alternate adding flour and sour cream into the mixing bowl.
5. Incorporate all for a nice soft dough. Take dough out of the bowl and put it onto a lightly floured work surface.
6. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out adding more flour if needed so it is not sticky.
7. Use cookie cutters to make your favorite shapes.
8. Place cookies on cookie sheet. Decorate with sprinkles.
9. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edge of cookies are brown.
10. Cool and enjoy!
1. These cookies can be cooked longer if you like a crunchy cookie, which my husband does so I make one crispy tray just for him.
2. You can decorate after the cookie has cooled using frosting of your choice.
3. This is the half recipe, it can be doubled.
4. Lastly, these cookies can be made any time of the year! I use just random cookie cutters. They can be frozen up to a month.
