Soft Giant Sugar Cookies
1/2 C. butter
1 1/2 C. sugar
1 t. vanilla
3 C. flour
1 t. salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1 C. sour cream
sugar for cookie tops
Cream butter until smooth. Add the sugar in gradually. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
Sift together the dry ingredients. Add to the creamed ingredients alternately with the sour cream, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.
Use a 1/4 cup measure of batter for each cookie on a well greased cookie sheet. These cookies will be about 5 inches across so space accordingly. Flatten the cookies with a spatula to about 4 inches across. Sprinkle with sugar or a cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake at 400°F. for about 10 - 12 minutes.
Yield: 18 - 5 inch cookies or about 30 3 inch cookies.
