Natalie's Perfect Sugar Cookies

My friend Natalie makes the most amazing sugar cookies!!! They are perfect! Soft, but not crumbly. She invited my girls over to decorate Christmas cookies, while I got all the presents wrapped. (True friendship!) They were thrilled! She is such a great person, and now I think she is even greater, because she shared her recipe with me! :) Just wish the cookies could have lasted longer... at least now I can make another batch! :)

Natalie's Perfect Sugar Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sour cream
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla

Mix all of the above ingredients together, then slowly add 5 cups of flour. (Chill dough before you roll out cookies for best results)

1 cube butter, softened
1 block of cream cheese, softened (8 oz.)
about 1 lb. powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Beat until creamy. (Sometimes I add a little milk and less butter to get the consistency I want)

Here they are with their pails full of cookies! What a gal- she knows how to make little girls VERY happy!
