Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookies
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sour cream
2 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
5 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
Cream together sugar and butter. Add sour cream, eggs, and vanilla. Mix well. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Gradually stir into creamed mixture. After mixing well, roll out on well floured surface. Roll to desired thickness (about 1/8 inch.) and cut out into desired shapes. Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire racks and frost as desired.
*I love this recipe because the cookie dough doesn't need to be refrigerated. I use cake frosting to frost my cookies.
