Soft Chewy Christmas Cookies !!
Soft Chewy Christmas Cookies !! This sounds just like the recipe my grandmother used to make. And they were perfection
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 tablespoons sour cream
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cream shortening, butter, sugar; add eggs, lemon, vanilla and sour cream.
Mix till creamy; add sifted dry ingredients: salt, soda, and flour.
Chill for several hours or overnight. Roll into balls and flatten with bottom of sugar coated glass.
Bake at 350°F just until the edges start turning color. Time will vary depending on how large and thick you made your cookies. It is important not to overbake if you want the texture to remain chewy and soft.
Decorate as desired.

REMEMBER!! WATCH YOUR PORTIONS! I have found that many do best when they control their portions rather than deny themselves food!
