Soft Sugar Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Has it really been since October since I last posted anything? I will make a post about that later but for now, I have to share with you the best soft sugar cookies you could ever make or share. If you love the Walmart soft sugar cookies that take over everyone's homes during any holiday then you will for sure love these. They are soft and the cream cheese frosting goes along perfect. 

2 1/4 Cup Flour
3/4 Cup Cornstarch
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1 Cup Butter. Room Temp
1 Cup Sugar
1 Egg
1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Cream Cheese Frosting
4 ounces cream cheese, room temp
4 Tablespoons Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
Optional: Food Coloring and Sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350.
In bowl mix together butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. 
In a separate bowl lightly mix together flour, cornstarch, salt, and baking powder. Slowly add this mix to the sugar mixture slowly. The mixture will be crumbly. 
Knead the cookie mixture well until it all comes together. Place flour onto your countertop and roll dough up to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into round shapes, I used a 2-inch diameter. 
Place cookies 2 inches apart on sheet and bake for 8 minutes.
Transfer to cookie rack, cool and frost. 

Cream Cheese Frosting
In medium bowl mix butter, cream cheese, and vanilla until smooth. Add in powdered sugar a little at a time until well combined. Add your coloring and decorate.
