Sour Cream Softies
from the kitchen of Trudy Escoubas

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ cup unsalted butter
1 ½ cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sour cream

Preheat the oven to 400º F.

Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

In a different bowl, beat the eggs and cream together with the butter,
sugar and vanilla.

Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream.

Drop by medium tablespoonfuls 4 inches apart, onto "air bake" cookie sheets
and bake for 10 minutes.

For other types of cookie sheets, lightly grease sheet and bake at 350º F.

Frost with confectioners powdered sugar frosting when cool!

Editors Note:
You might wish to tint the frosting with a pastel food color for spring.
