Brooks Breads Cafe Sour Cream Spice Cookies

3/4 lb. butter
11 oz. (1 1 /2 C. plus 2 T.) sugar
2 eggs
1 C. sour cream
1 T. vanilla extract
23 oz.(4 3/4 C. minus one tablespoon) flour
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 t. baking powder
2 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. ground mace
1/2 t. ground ginger
1 t. ground cloves
1 T. fine orange zest

Cream butter with mixer at high speed for 2 minutes until creamy. Scrape sides of bowl. Continue beating. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping bowl between additions. Add sour cream and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth.

At lower speed, add remaining ingredients. Mix only until incorporated. Put cookie dough onto a sheet pan and refrigerate until dough is firm (at least an hour; the colder the better).

When ready to roll, preheat oven to 350F. and flour work surface well. Take a piece of dough and form it into a ball, removing any cracks or seams. Roll out evenly. Use flour liberally, but brush off excess before baking. Cut into desired shapes. 

Bake 10-12 minutes at 350F. until edges are light brown. Center will be soft to the touch, but dough will spring back without leaving an imprint.

Makes about 30 cookies.
