Farm Journal's Complete Home Baking Book

This heirloom cookie was originally made with homemade sour cream stored in a crock in the basement.

The dough for drop cookies is soft enough to drop from a spoon. Use an ordinary teaspoon rather than a measuring spoon. Use slightly rounded spoonfuls rather than level ones. Push the dough off the spoon with a rubber spatula or another spoon. Make the drops all the same size so they will bake evenly. Bake them just until done. Remove immediately from baking sheet. If cookies are left for only a few minutes on a hot sheet, they will continue to bake and will be overdone and dry.

2-3/4 cup sifted flour

1-1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

1 cup butter or regular margarine

1-1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup dairy sour cream

1/2 tsp. lemon extract


Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg; set aside.

Cream together butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar in bowl until light and fluffy, using electric mixer at medium speed. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in sour cream and lemon extract.

Gradually stir dry ingredients into creamed mixture, blending well. Drop mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls, about 3 inches apart, on greased baking sheets. Sprinkle each with sugar.

Bake in 375 degree oven 8 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges. Remove from baking sheets; cool on racks. Makes 5 1/2 dozen.
