Super Soft Sugar Cookie

This great recipe came from my super friend Shelia. She is my go to "cookie lady" and I love her so. These are my favorite soft sugar cookies.

2 C sugar
1 C soft butter
2 eggs
1 tea vanilla
1 C sour cream
5 C flour
4 tea baking powder
1/2 tea soda
1/2 tea salt

Cream together butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until creamy. Add remaining ingredients and blend well. Roll out dough on a floured counter top. Place cookie shapes on lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake 350 for 10 minutes then remove from oven and let rest for 2 minutes and then remove from baking sheet to a wire rack, let cool before frosting.

Yields approximately 5 dozen

Cream Frosting
4 oz cream cheese
1/4-1/2 C butter

These are delicious! Is it the sour cream that makes these cookies so soft?
