Perma Soft Sugar Cookies

I totally stole this recipe from my cute cousin, Jen.

Perma Soft Sugar Cookies

1 cup sour cream
2 cups sugar
1 cup shortening
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

6 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Cream together sour cream, sugar, shortening, eggs and vanilla.

HINT: If you have the eggs at room temperature and then beat them for 3-5 minutes before adding the other ingredients, the cookies will come out really light and fluffy.

Slowly add the flour mixture until well blended. Chill for at least 15 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness, or a little thicker. Cut out your cookie shapes. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 8 to 10 minutes ~ do not let them bake any longer than 10 minutes! (check that the tops are just SLIGHTLY golden.)

Let them rest on the baking sheet for 1-2 minutes before moving them to a wire rack.
