Sugar Cookies

I know, I know, wrong holiday again!  I made these before Halloween this year and forgot to post the recipe.  I decided to post this recipe anyway because, you could make turkey shaped sugar cookies or Christmas trees or reindeer or stars or dinosaurs....okay, you get the idea.  This is one of my favorite sugar cookie recipes.  They are a tender cookie with a light mild frosting.  

Best Sugar Cookies

1 cube soft butter
1 cube margarine
1 & 2/3 C. sugar
2 eggs
1 C. sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla

4 & 1/2 C. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

Cream the butter, margarine, and sugar.  Add eggs, sour cream, and vanilla.  Mix in dry ingredients.  Roll out dough on a floured surface and cut shapes.  Bake on a greased sheet at 350* for 10 minutes.

Awesome Frosting

1 & 1/2 C. shortening
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. butter flavoring
