Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Cookiees

This recipe is from Betty Crocker's Cooky Book, p 79.

1/2 c shortening (part butter or margarine, I used all butter)
1 c sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
2-2/3 c all-purpose flour
1 t baking powder
1/2 t soda
1/2 t salt
1/4 t nutmeg
1/2 c commercial sour cream

Heat oven to 425 degrees (I heated my convection oven to 400 degrees).  Mix shortening, sugar, egg, and vanilla thoroughly.  Measure flour by dipping method or by sifting.  Blend dry ingredients; add to sugar mixture alternately with sour cream.  Divide dough; roll out to 1/4 inch thick on well-floured pastry cloth.  Cut with 2 inch cutter; place on greased baking sheet (I use parchment paper).  Sprinkle with sugar.  Bake 8 to 10 min or until lightly browned.  Makes 4 to 5 doz. 2 inch cookies.
