These are two of the most requested recipes I have.  In fact, the sugar cookie one is THE MOST requested.  But mostly by Meggin because either it's lost or packed away.  

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies
1 1/4 C sugar
1/2 C Margerine
1/2 C sour cream
1 t vanilla
1 egg
cream these ingredients.
In another bowl, mix the following:
3 1/4 C flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
mix together.
Refrigerate at least one hour. C
Bake at 400 degrees 5-7 minutes.

Gingerbread Cookies
Cream the following three ingredients:
1 C shortening
1 C Sugar
2 eggs
In a separate bowl add
1/2 C cold water
2 t baking soda
1 C molasses
In another bowl (yes three bowls are involved) add
4-6 C flour
1 t ginger
1t cinnamon
1t salt
Combine all three bowls together.  
Refrigerate at least one hour.

  1. Could I sub real butter for the shortening? Probably wouldn't be as yummy then.
    I hope your oatmeal cookies turn out nice!

  2. I am making these today. We tried to make some "healthy" gingerbread with and it was a huge FAIL so today I am trying again with all the original ingredients. Thanks!!!!
