This is a drop cookie. I have been making it for over 35 years. It is the first cookie I ever made!!!
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup sour cream
- 6 tablespoons cinnamon sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Cream butter to consistency of mayonnaise. Add sugar gradually, while continuing to cream.
Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla and beat until light and fluffy.
In a separate bowl, mix and sift flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
Add dry ingredients alternately with sour cream; beginning and ending with dry ingredients.
Drop by teaspoons or tablespoons depending on the size cookie you want. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture over the tops of the cookies. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
