Nutmeg Sugar Cookies (Christmas Cookies) - Margaret Ullrich

The kids are climbing the walls.
They need something to do.

Flour companies are saying that baking together is right up there 
with praying together.
It'll create wonderful memories.
Sure, at this point you're ready to try anything.


Good.
You'll need them for this recipe, too.
Pack away the sharp knife.
Now.


                        Sugar Cookies

Grease 3 large baking sheets

In a large bowl sift together
2 2/3 Cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

In a large mixer bowl cream together until fluffy
1/2 Cup butter 
1 Cup sugar

Add
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Add alternately with the sifted ingredients
1/2 Cup sour cream
Store dough in a covered container in the refrigerator 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 375º
On a floured surface, roll the dough 1/4 inch thick.  Cut.
Place the cookies 2 inches apart on the baking sheets.
Sprinkle with
Sugar
Place in the center of the cookies
raisins

Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
Let cool 1 minute.
Remove, place on racks and cool completely.


I know, it's just what the kids need.
A sugar high.
But making the cookies kept them busy.
And they'll drink some milk.


Hey, nothing's perfect.
