Melissa's Sugar Cookies

This recipe is from my friend Melissa. They are one of the best sugar cookies I've ever had! Here's the recipe:

2 cups shortening
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups sugar
2 cups sour cream
3 eggs
6 cups flour
1 tsp soda
2 tsp baking powder

Combine all ingredients. Chill for at least 1 hour. Roll out with flour and cut into desired shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

Here's her recipe for icing:
1 cups shortening
1 cup butter
2 tsp vanilla
2 lb bag of powdered sugar
4 TBL water

In Kitchen Aid whip first 3 ingredients until smooth, add powdered sugar slowly and mix until it looks dry. Add your water and whip on high for 3-4 minutes - yummy!!!
