These are a tasty little treat instead of the same old, same old.
You will need:
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/8 tsp. baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/8 cup packed brown sugar (dark)
- 1 egg beaten
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla flavouring
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- grated peel from 1 lime
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and grated lime peel.
Cream butter, add sugars and beat until creamy. Add the egg and flavoring, mixing well.
Add the flour, alternating with the sour cream. Set aside to chill.
Divide into rolls, wrap in wax paper and chill for an hour. Cut into slices 1/8 inch thick and bake for 8-10 minutes on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
I have had this recipe in my recipe box for about 22 years. I have no idea where it came from but it is sure tasty.
