This is a family favorite...we always look forward to making these every year with the children. The cookies are soft and they melt in your mouth...

1 cup of butter or two sticks
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 T vanilla
2 egg yolks
4 cups of flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in yolks, one at a time. Add sour cream, and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients...then mix all ingredients together. Put in the refridgerator to chill...I put some on cling wrap and flatten...and then put in the fridge. After it has chilled a couple of hours...roll out and cut out with cookie cutters. Bake 10-12 minutes. Mix together ingredients for the frosting. Frost the cookies when they have cooled.

8 oz room temperature cream cheese
1 stick of butter
4 cups powdered sugar
2 T vanilla
food coloring and sprinkles (optional)
