Sour Cream Cookies

Being the penny pincher that I am, I hate wasting food. I go out of my way to find recipes to make just to use up that last of the half and half or other ingredient that I don't normally have on hand. Today, we had a little bit of sour cream left in the refrigerator and we just happened to be going to a friends to watch the opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics. I would normally just make some sort of dip, but someone already called bring chips and salsa so I had to be creative.
I have this box of recipes that mom copied down for me. The recipes are all family recipes and this one comes from my Mommaw. I love old recipes because they are so thrifty and interesting.
These cookies, as weird as they sound, are really good. They are almost cake like in texture and taste a little bit like plain butter cookies.

1/4 c butter
1 c sugar
1/4 c sour cream
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 c flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Cream butter and sugar.
  • Add sour cream. Beat 1 minute.
  • Add other ingredients and mix lightly
  • Drop from spoon. 
  • Bake 10 minutes at 350*


  1. I love old family recipes. Thanks for sharing!

  2. These look and sound wonderful!
    Love old- frugal- recipes! :-)
