Sugar Cookies


1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 tsp baking powder
5-6 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt

Cream butter, sugar, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla. Gradually stir in remaining ingredients. You want the dough to be soft, but not too sticky. Chill until cold, then roll it out and cut it into shapes. Make sure you cookies are at a nice thickness (thin sugar cookies are never good). Bake at 350 deg for 8-15 minutes (time varies by thickness). Once the bottoms are slightly golden they're done!

Frosting:
5 Tbl butter (room temperature)
3 Tbl crisco
2 tsp vanilla
approx 8 cups of powdered sugar
approx 10 Tbl evaporated milk
Cream butter and crisco. Mix everything together until you get a good consistency.

*This recipe makes about 4 dozen cookies! So the frosting recipe is large so you have enough to frost every cookie!
