    Cookie baking was one of my favorite things about Christmas, so I loved this. And thanks for including the recipe!

      A question: it says “soft margarine.” Do you combine the margarine, sugar, eggs, vanilla and sour cream and then work in the flour?

        I love these old recipes where you are just given a list of ingredients and assume the maker knows how to put them all together! My mother taught us a very specific order for baking — first mix the butter (I used butter, not margarine) and sugar, then add eggs and vanilla, and then the dry ingredients. For this recipe, I alternated dry ingredients and sour cream, beginning and ending with the flour. I also let the dough sit in the refrigerator for an hour or so to make rolling easier.

    Never mind the recipe. Assume that is your daughter–she is delightful and so delighted over the cookies!
    I so appreciate glimpsing the world through your eyes and camera.
