Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies
It wouldn't be Christmas without holiday shaped sugar cookies. Yum, yum. These sugar cookies are tender, a little chewy, and melt in your mouth good. I think it's the sour cream that gives them such an awesome taste. They taste especially great with your favourite cookie frosting and / or sprinkles. 
1 3/4 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Shortening or Butter or half a cup of each
3 Eggs
1 Cup Sour Cream
4 Cups Flour
1 Tsp. Baking Powder
1 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 Tsp. Salt
A dash of vanilla or almond extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Blend together the wet ingredients: the sugar, shortening, eggs, sour cream, and extract. 
Sift together the dry ingredients: the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Add to the wet ingredients. 
Roll out the cookies. Cut them with your favourite cookie cutters. Top with sprinkles or fancy sugar. 
Bake 8-12 mins.
