Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

People either love these or hate them. The dough is extremely soft. Work with it cold, Roll them quite thick, DO NOT over bake, and store airtight. They are my favorite.

1/4 c butter
1/4 c shortening
1 c sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c sour cream
2 2/3 c flour
1 tsp B Powder
1/2 tsp B soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg (the secret ingedient)

Sift together all dry ingredients. In another bowl, mix all other ingredients except sour cream. Alternate adding dry ingredients and sour cream until all is blended. Wrap in plastic and chill. Roll and shape. Bake at 425* for 8-10 minutes. They should not be brown, at all.

Soft and fluffy. We call them heroin cookies. ;-)
