These cookies are a old favorite in my family.

Sour Cream Cookies

1 C butter                                   1 tsp baking soda

3/4 C sugar                                 1 tsp baking powder

1/2 C brown sugar                      1 tsp nutmeg

2 eggs                                         1 tsp salt

1 C sour cream                            3 1/2 C flour

1 tsp vanilla                                 1/2  C- 1 C chopped pecans

Pre heat oven to 350 F
Cream butter, sugars, and eggs. Add sour cram and vanilla.  Mix well. Add the dry ingredients and the amount of pecans you want.. Chill dough. The dough is very sticky so it is important you chill it for a minimum of 3 hours. Roll dough out to about 1/2 in thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut with your favorite cutters. Bake until barely brown. About 8 to 10 minutes depending on your oven.  Cool on a rack and enjoy

hi, i would love to try the recipe, thank you very much for it
still, i have some questions - 1 C = 1 cup, right?
3/4 C sugar = white sugar?
how fat is your sour cream?
tsp = tea spoon?
1 tsp baking = baking powder?

sorry for many questions, thanks!

Hi, no worrie about all the questions.
C is cup
tsp is teaspoon
yes it is white sugar
I always use regual sour cream because that's what grandma used but you could probally use low fat if you are watching stuff like that.
It's 1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder. I fixed the recipe
I hope you enjoy the cookies

Have you ever made these as drop cookies? I only ask because they sound delicious, but I am lazy and don't care for rolling out dough and using cookie cutters. Thanks!

No, I've always rolled them out because that's how my grandma and mom alway do it. If you do try doing them as drop cookies, let me know how it turns out, I hate rolling and cutting out cookies.

Do they taste sour or tart at all?

No, Not at all. They are mildly sweet.
