The Best Sugar Cookies Ever

These are the best sugar cookies. We roll them a little thick and they stay soft for days! Be careful not to over bake them (you really don't want them to brown at all). Enjoy!

7 C flour
2 t soda
1 t salt
1 C margarine or shortening
2 C sugar
2 egg
2 t vanilla
1 C sour cream

Mix dry ingredients together. Cream wet ingredients. Add all together and roll out, cut into shapes. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.

1/3 C soft butter
1 1/2 t vanilla
3 C powdered sugar
about 2 T milk

Blend butter and sugar. Add vanilla and milk and desired food coloring. Beat until smooth.

1 egg                    ¼ C Molasses
2 ¼ C Flour         2 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt            ½ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. cloves       ¼ tsp. ginger

Make into balls and roll in sugar.  Bake 375˚ 7-9 mins. Do not overbake or they will be too hard and more like the store bought kind.
