Sour Cream Softies Cookies

Recipe from my Grandma Dot (Dorothy Kinnane). Brings back wonderful memories. This was her favorite cookie!

  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup (1 stick) of margarine or butter
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup (8 oz.) sour cream
  • cinnamon/sugar mixture: ( ¼ cup of each and mix)
  • Pecan halves

Measure flour, baking powder, and baking soda into a sifter. NOTE* I have made these without a sifter.

In large bowl, cream margarine with sugar until blended.

Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Sift in flour mixture, adding alternately with sour cream and blending to make a thick batter.

Drop by rounded Tablespoons – 4” apart on a greased cookie sheet.

Sprinkle each cookie with some cinnamon/sugar mixture. Really just sprinkle A LOT on!!

Then place a pecan half on top of each cookie.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes OR until LIGHTLY browned. Make sure only lightly browned!!

Watch closely. Do not overcook
