Sour Cream Cookies

Farmwives of New England have always been famous for their sour cream cakes. This recipe is very old and very choice. It is from a hand-written cook book owned by a woman noted far and wide for her sour cream cakes.


4 cups flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. soda

1 cup butter

2 cups sugar

1 cup sour cream

2 eggs unbeaten

1 tsp. lemon extract

Sift together the flour, salt and soda. Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the eggs, one at a time and beat until light. Add the flavoring. Add the flour and cream alternately and mix into a soft dough. Handle the dough lightly while rolling it thin and cutting it into fancy shapes. Sprinkle the cakes with sugar and bake at 400° F. until pale brown.
