This is a Crisco recipe; it is the shortening and the sour cream that makes these cookies so soft. Don’t use light sour cream, it will add extra moisture without substance and the cookies will not work out.
3-1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup 14% sour cream
1 batch of vanilla buttercream cookie frosting
candy sprinkles
• Preheat the oven to 375F.
• Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
• Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl. Set aside.
• Combine shortening, sugar, egg, and vanilla in a large bowl, beat for 2 minutes.
• Add the sour cream and half of the dry ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon.
• Stir in remaining dry ingredients.
• With oiled hands roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet about 3 inches apart.
• Dip the bottom of a glass into flour; press dough down to about 1/2-inch thickness.
• Bake from 10 to 11 minutes.
• Check the cookies, when the bottoms are beginning to have a light blond color, remove them from the oven.
• Remove from oven and allow cookies to solidify on the baking sheet.
• Then transfer cookies to cooling racks with a metal spatula.
• Cool completely.
• Meanwhile prepare the vanilla buttercream cookie frosting.
• Spread on the cookies, and drop candy sprinkles on the top.


  1. More cookies! I think that your cookies always look fantastic and I'm amazed at the number of different frostings you have been preparing recently.

  2. Zsuzsa, I just love your simple cookie recipe, and mostly the frosting with the cute sprinkles that my grandchildren would have so much fun with! Cookies are so yummy!

  3. How pretty Zsuzsa, and thanks for the tip about the sour cream, I would have failed this one big time as I always reduce fat where ever possible.

  4. Thank you ladies, but I don't just bake cookies. I have several recipes going back a few months... Now my friend on the other hand... she liked these so much she is making 30 dozen for a church fundraiser. After making 30 dozen in a couple of days, I don't think she will want to look at these cookies ever again. :-)
