Grandma Klein’s Sugar Cookies

A long-time Klein, Fahy and Lane family tradition. Remembering Irene Burgess Klein with love 

2 c sugar
1/2 c shortening
1/2 c butter, softened
2 t vanilla
2 eggs
5 1/3 c flour
1 c sour cream
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1/2 t nutmeg

for sprinkling on top – sugar mixed with cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°.  Beat together sugar, shortening, butter vanilla egg.  Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl and add gradually to the sugar mixture alternating with sour cream.  Divide dough into quarters.  Roll out the first quarter to 1/4″ thick on a floured board and cut out cookies with cookie cutters dipped in flour.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet and sprinkle with the sugar & cinnamon.  Bake until no indentation remains when touched, and bottoms are lightly browned, about 6-8 minutes.
