German Chocolate Cookies

This was one of my Mother-in-law's favorite recipes. It's an old German family recipe that she passed on to me before she died in 1988. It's been a long time since I made this recipe but I do recall that it makes dozens of cookies and the cookies are absolutely delicious!

4 C flour
6 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 t soda
3 C sugar
2 eggs
1 C shortening
1 C commercial sour cream (1/2 pt.)
6 ozs. Baker's bitter chocolate
1 C chopped nuts

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, soda & combine with sugar, eggs, shortening, & sour cream. Combine chocolate & nuts with above ingredients.

Bake at 350 degrees about 12 minutes
