Sour Cream Cookies

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup soft butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sour cream
1 tbsp sugar (for dusting)
1 tsp cinnamon (for dusting)

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Combine flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.

In large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, then vanilla. Stir flour mixture and sour cream into creamed mixture, alternately in thirds.

Drop rounded tablespoons of dough 3 inches apart onto parchment-lined cookie sheet. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon and dust the tops of the cookies.

Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 5 to 8 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
