Plan D: Whatcha Got Cookin' {Sour Cream Cinnamon Sugar Cookies}

Grr!  I was going to share Cassy's birthday skirt with you today, but...let's just say the sewing machine and I aren't speaking right now.

So on to plan B.  I would make the St Patrick's accessories for the Accessories Shirts.  But when I pulled all the stuff out, I realized I was out of buttons.

Plan C was to share some posters that I am making for this year's Primary Program songs.  I hit print and... Low INK!!!  UHHHH!  Why?  Come on!  Something has got to work for me today!

So, that leaves us with plan D.  Here goes.
I took the photos for these cookies at Christmas time, hoping to share them as part of the Elf on the Shelf Advent, but things didn't work out back then.  Maybe I will have a little luck with this today.

(like I said, these were taken back at Christmas time.  So, sorry for the holiday plate!)
Sour Cream Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.


  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. shortening
  • 3 eggs (beaten)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • dash of salt
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp. soda
  • 4 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 c. coconut
In a separate bowl, mix together 3/4 c. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon.  Drop dough by the teaspoon into the cinnamon sugar, coat, and bake on un-greased pan for 10 minutes.

I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does.  This was one of my Dad's favorites.  :)

I guess I am off to make peace with the sewing machine...wish me luck!
