Sugar Cookies


from Aubrey

1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 tsp vanilla
4 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp soda
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla and eggs. Mix. In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients. Slowly add sour cream and alternate it and the dry ingredients. Mix well. One bonus to these sugar cookies is that this dough does not need to be refrigerated before rolling out.

Roll out and cut into desired shapes. Bake at 370 for 8 to 9 minutes. Makes approximately 2 or 3 dozen depending on size of cookie shapes.

These are super soft and so yummy! Note: I prefer to have nearly the same amount of frosting as cookie for this recipe. So I usually do one batch plus a half recipe of the cream cheese frosting recipe.
