Sugar Cookies

I got this recipe from Leesa.

1 cup shortening (I use the butter flavor)
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
5 cups flour
Cream shortening & sugar together. Add eggs,sour cream, & vanilla. Mix dry ingred. (Soda, salt, bkg powder) with 1 cup flour. Add to creamed mixture, then add the remaining flour, or as much as needed to form soft dough. 
Roll out on floured surface, fairly thick & cut in desired shapes. 
Place on greased cookie sheets & bake 350 9-12min. 
Watch them closely. I personally like mine almost doughy:)  

1 tablespoon butter
2 cups powdered sugar
Pinch of salt
Enough milk to make desired consistency
1 tsp almond or vanilla extract
