These cookies remind us of Snickerdoodles, just more cake-like. Grandma said they remind her of some tea cookies her mom used to make, but these are a bit thicker. Her mom would also make a frosting and make them into cream filled sandwich cookies. Sounds like a great idea!

1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. sifted flour
1 c. sour cream
1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking powder
Cinnamon sugar
