Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • FROSTING:
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons whole milk

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Add sour cream and vanilla; mix well. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and baking soda; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm enough to roll.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. On a well-floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 3-in. cookie cutter. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
  3. Bake 10-12 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. For frosting, in a bowl, beat butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla, salt and enough milk to reach desired consistency. Spread over cookies.
