Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: Fifteen Minutes
Total Time: More than 1 hour

1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2-3 tbsp milk
In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Mix in sour cream and vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time. Gradually add in the flour, baking powder, cornstarch and salt until everything is incorporated. Cover and chill at least one hour. Preheat oven to 350F. Roll chilled dough into 1 1/2" balls and flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass. Place on a cookie sheet 2" apart. Bake for 10 minutes; cool on wire racks. To make the frosting, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and vanilla extract. Slowly beat in powdered sugar. Once smooth and creamy, add in milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, then beat until light and fluffy. Spread on cooled cookies or pipe on using an icing bag and fitted tip.
