Super Soft Sugar Cookies/Butter Cream Frosting

I recently made these for an orthodontic office that allowed two of my classmates and I to do a research project there. So, we decided to make them a little treat to thank them. Aren't these cookies adorable!? Okay so maybe I'm a little TOO into my profession, but I think they're to die for. While frosting them at school we had some extra and I had a request to put this recipe up. They are honestly the softest and best sugar cookies I have ever had. You know whenever you have a homemade sugar cookie and it's rock hard? Well, NOT these ones!
PS- Since I'm kinda on the subject of dentistry I just want to throw it out there that a hygienist and an assistant is NOT the same thing. I had an old friend ask me the other day why I was doing something so worthless and something that didn't pay more than $10 an hour. I explained to this person the difference and he/she now understands that it is a much better job than an assistant. The hygienist cleans... and does much more in the office than an assistant is even allowed to do. Okay sorry for my mini rant... Here is the recipe!

Super Soft Sugar Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla

Cream the above ingredients. Add the following:

3 - 4 cups flour
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp salt

Bake at 350 for 5-10 minutes on parchment paper or lightly greased pan.

Butter Cream Frosting
1/3 cup softened butter
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup milk

Mix all ingredients and add food coloring if desired. The key to this is not softening/melting the butter too much. Otherwise your frosting will come out way too runny. Yeah I learned that the hard way.

ENJOY! :) You'll never go back to any other sugar cookie recipe after this one!
