Thin Crispy Sugar Cookies

1 1/2 cup Granulated sugar
1 cup Shortening
2 Eggs (unbeaten)
3 tbsp Sour cream
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 tsp Lemon extract
3 cups All-purpose flour
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Salt

A little at a time, add sugar to shortening, creaming mixture until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add sour cream and extracts. Combine flour, soda, and salt in separate bowl and add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Chill dough 1 hour. Roll out small amounts of dough at a time, very thinly, on a lightly floured surface. Cut with cookie cutters into desired shapes. Place onto ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle with additional colored sugars or white sugar. Bake at 400 degrees F for 6-9 minutes or until golden.
