1/4 ts Each baking soda and salt
1/3 c Butter
1 Egg
1/3 c Dairy sour cream
1/2 c Milk

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour, vanilla sugar, baking

knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Make a well in the center.

In a small mixing bowl, beat egg slightly; stir in sour cream until
smooth. Stir in milk. Add egg mixture all at once to the flour
mixture. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.

Drop dough from a slightly rounded tablespoon onto a lightly greased
baking sheet. Bake at 375 F. for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.
Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.
Sift powdered sugar over the tops. Serve warm.
