Cookies With Grammy

What is the holiday season without baking cookies with Grammy?!?! While visiting Michael's parents, Isaiah had a chance to do just that. He didn't have his apron, so one of Papa's t-shirts was a good stand-in.

You can tell by the look on Isaiah's and Grammy's faces that this cookie baking is serious business. I think they were making a "snake" cookie here. These can never be just your normal run-of-the-mill cookies...no, you have to make snakes and robots...and cars. I know, real "Christmasy", huh?

Here's one of my favorite cookie recipes:



OLD FASHIONED SOFT SUGAR COOKIES

Sift together in large bowl:
3 1/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Add:
1/2 cup soft butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon nutmeg


Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.

Add:
1/2 cup thick sour cream

sifted flour mixture

Preheat oven to 375-400F degrees.

Beat at low speed until well blended (1 1/2 minutes). Roll out lightly on floured board to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut and sprinkle with sugar. Put on prepared cookie sheet. Bake about 12 minutes at 375-400 degrees.
