Sour Cream Sugar Cookies

I love my sugar cookies soft. If you don't, this recipe isn't for you. But these turn out right every time. And just in time for Valentine's. Adorn these cookies just the way you want. I'll include my frosting recipe as well.

Sugar Cookies

3 cups sifted flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract

Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg, then add sour cream and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture 1/3 at a time.

Wrap dough in wax paper and chill.

Roll out 1/4 inch thick. Cut out cookies in desired shapes and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 10 minutes.

My Cookie Frosting

4 oz. cream cheese
1 stick of softened butter
2 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

With an electric mixer, mix all together and add a little milk if necessary. Mix in desired food coloring.
