Sugar Cookies and Vanilla Butter Frosting

A fast recipe (for a sugar cookie) that is really soft and chewy!

3 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sour cream

You all know about combining the liquids and the solids....
Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen so I usually double or triple the recipe.

Vanilla Butter Frosting

I think this is from my Betty Crocker cookbook. I always have it out of the binder and into my most commonly used recipes binder.

1/3 c. soft butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
About 2 Tbsp. milk (I always put in more until it's a good consistency)

Blend butter and sugar. Stir in vanilla and milk; beat until frosting is smooth and of spreading consistency.

We made these for Santa. Even the dough is yum, and I love that these sugar cookies are fat and tender instead of thin and crisp. Thanks!
