Here is a 100+ year old from scratch traditional old fashioned spice cookie recipe and a bit about its food history. These make a nice soft chewy cookie with lots of spice.
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Cream together the Crisco, white sugar and brown sugar with a stand mixer's beater blade until fluffy.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and pinch of salt in a large bowl.
Slowly beat in the flour until it is thoroughly mixed.
Beat in the sour cream slowly.
Fold in the spice/nut mixture with the beater blade on slow speed.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and drop 1 Tbsp. balls.
Bake at 350°F for 10-12 min until just brown on the edges. Makes 36 cookies.
