Velvety Butter Cookies

This is the best sugar cookie recipe ever! I found this recipe on Gooseberry Patch and the cookies are soft and very tasty. The dough does tend to be very sticky so use either powdered sugar or flour for rolling out the dough.

2 cups butter, softened
8 oz pkg cream cheese softened
2 cups sugar
 2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla
4 1/2 cup all- purpose flour

Combine all ingredients; mix well. Chill for at least 2 hours. Roll out on floured surface to 1/4 inch thick. Cut out with your choice of cookie cutters. Bake on greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for
10-12 minutes. Frost  and decorate.

I will be posting this to Gold Star Wednesday's, Foodie Friday, What's Cooking Wednesday
