My Favorite Sugar Cookies

Sorry I have a sick baby I haven't posted in a while. These are the best sugar cookies, they are soft and just so yummy especially with the cream cheese frosting. I cut them out into heart shapes and decorate them for valentines. I give them away as special Valentines treats to neighbors and friends. I don't know if I'll be able to this year but it has been a tradition from before I was even married.

1 cup shortening
2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
4 1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix shortening, sugar, eggs, vanilla and sour cream. Mix with dry ingredients. Chill 2 hours. Roll 1/4" thick. Heat oven to 400 degrees baking for 8 minutes.

Classic Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 stick (8 tbsp.) butter or margarine, at room temperature
3 ¾ cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Cream together cream cheese and butter. Add sugar gradually on low speed until incorporated. Add vanilla and increase speed to medium to blend and fluff, about 1 minute. Makes 3 cups, enough to frost 2 or 3 layer cake.
