Sour Cream Drops

While these may look like a plain boring cookie they are anything but.  Another recipe from the Taste Of Home Baking Book submitted by Tracy Betzler.  She knows how to make a gooood cookie!

Sour Cream Drops

1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
3 teaspoons hot water

Cream shortening, sugar and egg. Add sour cream and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients; add to the creamed mixture. Chill for at least 1 hour.               

 Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 425 degrees for 7-8 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.               

For frosting, melt butter in a small saucepan until golden brown; stir, vanilla and enough water to achieve a spreading consistency. Frost cooled cookies.
