Divine Sugar Cookies

This recipe is from my good friend, Mary, who made sugar cookies for us for Christmas. If you make them thick, they are so soft and so delicious. I haven't made them yet, but she says they are super easy-you don't have to refrigerate the dough! Try 'em out.

Sugar Cookies
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
2 1/2 tsp vanilla
6 cups flour
8 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
Blend butter, sugar and eggs until fluffy. Add sour cream and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir. Add dry ingredients to wet. Add more flour if dough is too sticky, but if you can, heavily flour a pastry mat and rolling pin, it's better. Roll out to 1/2" thick and cut shapes. These cookies bake best on an insulated cookie sheet. Use parchment paper or spray cookie sheet with Pam. Bake at 375-400 degrees for 9-10 minutes. **Cookies should NOT change color!** Enjoy!
