Sour Cream Cutouts

Yesterday we decorated sugar cookies with our friends, the Laytons. It was so much fun, and we got some yummy and cute cookies, too. These are my favorite sugar cookies because they are soft and I always make cream cheese frosting for them. Marsha originally got this recipe from someone a few years ago.

1 C. butter
2 C. sugar
3-4 eggs

Mix and add:
1 tsp. almond extract
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C. sour cream

Blend and add
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
5-6 C. flour

Refrigerate dough for a couple of hours or overnight. Roll out and cut into shapes. Bake 8-10 minutes at 375°.

1 ½ C. butter
12 oz. cream cheese
1 ½ tsp. vanilla
1 ½ bags powdered sugar
