HOW MUCH EASIER DO YOU WANT IT?:

Old-Fashioned Mixmaster Sugar Cookies (Dallas Morning News, November 7, 2007)

3 ¼ cups sifted all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 teaspoon salt

½ cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1 ½ teaspoons vanilla or 1 teaspoon nutmeg

1/3 cup thick sour cream

Preheat oven to 400 F. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Combine in large bowl of electric mixer the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla. Beat on medium-high for 2 minutes. Stop mixer. Add sour cream and then flour mixture gradually while beating on medium-low for about 2 minutes. Scrape bowl as necessary.

Roll out dough on lightly floured board to ¼ -inch thickness. Sprinkle with sugar; roll in lightly. Cut with floured cookie cutter. Place on greased cookie sheets. If desired, put a raisin, nut or piece of gum drop in center.

Bake about 12 minutes, until golden brown.
