Sugar Cookies and Frosting

I've made many different sugar cookie recipes and this one is definitely my favorite. It may be due to the thickness or the sour cream or both. I'll also post the frosting recipe I use, which is the frosting I use for my cakes as well.

2 cups Sugar

1 cup Margarine

2 eggs
