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.

Intermission:
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.

Finale:
Frost with your favorite frosting and enjoy!
