Grandma Schroeder's Old Fashioned Sour Cream Cookies

Sour cream cookies? YES. DON’T HATE. Instead make them and come thank me when you taste the amazingness that comes out of these cookies. I even have two batches for you! This is my grandma’s recipe and she always makes them at Christmas. I would watch your first batch to decide on how well you want them baked. I prefer the soft cakey cookie, but other’s might want a more crunchy one. Enjoy!
