Granny’s Citrus Snowflake Cookies

 

1 stick butter, soft

1/3 cup shortening

1 cup sugar

1/3 cup sour cream

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp lemon zest

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

dash salt

2 1/2 cups flour

Coarse Sugar, for topping if desired

Powdered sugar

Cream butter until light and fluffy; beat in sugar, sour cream, egg, vanilla, lemon zest, baking powder, soda and salt.   Stir in flour.   Divide dough in half, cover and chill over night (minimum 2 hours).

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Roll half dough at a time on lightly floured surface, to 1/4 inch thick.   Use assorted snowflake cookie cutters or sharp knife dipped in flour to cut dough into snowflakes and use a straw to cut random holes and to cut half circles from the edges to look like snowflakes.   Using a spatula, place cookies about 1 inch apart on cookie sheet.   Sprinkle with coarse sugar, if desired.

Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are firm and bottoms are golden.   Transfer to cooling rack.   When cookies are cooled sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
