"Granny B's" Sugar Cookies

Thanks to Laura at Real Mom Cooking for this recipe, and I'm not gonna lie to you, these really do taste like those "Granny B's" big pink frosted cookies you know you have all tried. Yummy! My mouth is watering already!

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sour cream

Cream Butter and sugar together, then slowly add eggs, and Vanilla. Sift dry ingredients together, then add dry mixture to the wet mixture along with the sour cream, mix until smooth.

Chill: 2 to 3 hours

roll out to 1/4 - 1/3 " thick depending on your preference and cut into shapes
bake at 375 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown on bottom and let cool.

Butter Frosting

4 Tablespoons butter
2 1/3 cup powdered sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
for chocolate frosting add 3 Tablespoons cocoa

Put butter in bowl and beat with electric mixer until fluffy. Then add about half the powdered sugar. Then beat in 1 Tablespoon milk and the vanilla. Slowly add in the rest of the powdered sugar. Add more milk if needed. Add food coloring if desired. The makes enough frosting to ice half of a cake mix, so I usually double the recipe.

Add some almond extract and I bet they'd be divine.
