As Requested...

Mrs. Eva's Sugar Cookies

The cast:
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 Tbsp. baking powder
4 1/2 cups flour

Scene 1:
Cream together butter and sugar. After it is creamed add eggs, sour cream, and vanilla and mix.

Scene 2:
Sift together salt, baking soda, baking powder, and flour. Then add it 1 cup at a time to the butter and sugar mixture, making sure you mix it in completely before adding the next cup. The dough will be slightly sticky.

Cover the bowl and put it in the refrigeratior for about 2 hours

Scene 3:
Take the dough out of the fridge. Roll it out on a well floured surface to desired thickness (I like them about 1/4 inchish). Then use your favorite cookie cutter to cut out the cookies. Place them on a cookie sheet sprayed with pam and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until slightly golden around the edges.

Frost with your favorite frosting and enjoy!
