Halloween Sugar Cookies

Sugar Cookie
2 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 c butter
2 eggs
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
4 1/2 cups to 5 cups flour (for soft dough)
nutmeg (if desired)

Cream together sugar, sourcream, butter, and eggs. Add soda, baking powder, vanilla and flour. Add nutmeg if desired. Roll on slightly floured surface. Cut into desired shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until slightly browned.

Cookie Recipe came from a CD of recipes Jim got for me a long time ago. The Sour Cream helps keep the cookies soft for several days.

Powder Sugar Frosting
4 cups powder sugar
1/2 cup shortening or butter
5 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
food coloring

In a large bowl, cream together the powder sugar and shortening (or butter) until smooth. Gradually mix in the milk and vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth and stiff, about 5 minutes. Color with food coloring if desired.

The frosting recipe came from I put the alternate use of butter because that's what I use when I make it. If frosting is too thin add more powder sugar. If too thick add more milk a few drops at a time.
