These cookies remind us of Snickerdoodles, just more cake-like. Grandma said they remind her of some tea cookies her mom used to make, but these are a bit thicker. Her mom would also make a frosting and make them into cream filled sandwich cookies. Sounds like a great idea!


1/2 c. butter or margarine

1 1/2 c. sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

3 c. sifted flour

1 c. sour cream

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

Cinnamon sugar


Cream butter or margarine with sugar until well blended. Beat in eggs and  vanilla. Add sifted flour, alternately with sour cream, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Blend to make a thick batter.Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls, 4 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar and bake at 400 degrees for 9-10 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges. Remove from cookie sheet and cool completely on wire rack.
