Sour Cream Roll out Cookies

These are the only cut out cookies I remember making as a kid. It is still my favorite cut out recipe. The girls and I made these this past week.

Sour Cream Roll out Cookies

2 c. sugar
4-7 c. flour **
1/2 t. salt
2 t. cr. of tartar
2 t. baking soda
1 c. butter
3 eggs
3/4 c. sour cream
1 t. vanilla or 3 t. lemon flavoring**

Directions:
Cut in butter to sugar and flour. Add the rest of the ingredients. Refrigerate at least one hour. Roll out at least 1/4 in. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Frost with cream cheese frosting.

Frosting:
1 3 oz cream cheese(or 1/2 of an 8 oz)
2 T butter
1 1/2 t. vanilla
2-4 T milk
2 or more cups powdered sugar
pinch of salt.

Mix all together and tint with food coloring.
** Beth's notes......We have ALWAYS used the lemon flavoring and everyone loves them. I mixed up a batch today with only 4 cups of flour and it is way too moist. I have used up to 7 cups, depending on the humidity. Enjoy!
