Super Soft Sugar Cookies

These cookies will melt in your mouth!! You can substitute light cream cheese and sour cream for a slightly healthier version, but there's no getting past the two cups of sugar!

3/4 c. butter, softened
2 c. sugar
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. sour cream
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
5 1/2 c. flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Cream butter, sugar and cream cheese in mixing bowl. Add sour cream, eggs and vanilla, beat until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt and soda and then slowly add to cream mixture. Refrigerate for one hour. Roll onto floured surface and cut into desired shapes with cookie cutter.

Bake on greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until firm. Don't overcook! Bottoms should be a very light brown. Transfer to wire rack immediately and cool.

1 stick of real butter, room temp.
16 oz. powdered sugar
1-2 tsp. vanilla
evaporated milk

Whip butter and slowly add powdered sugar and vanilla. Add milk until desired consistency.
