How to make old-fashioned sugar cookies:

Combine sugars and shortening until creamy and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Stir in sour cream, blending well. Sift flour with dry ingredients. Add to the batter with lemon extract or vanilla. Add enough flour so dough can be easily rolled out. Roll out on floured board to 1/4-inch thick. Cut with a large cookie cutter. Sprinkle with sugar. Place a raisin or pecan half in the center of each cookie. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets and bake at 350° until lightly browned (about 10 minutes).
