Valentine`s Day Sugar Cookies

* 3 1/2 cups Sifted flour
* 2 1/2 teaspoons Baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon Salt
* 6 ounces sweet butter
* 2 teaspoons Vanilla
* 1 1/2 cup Granulated sugar
* 2 Eggs
* 1 tablespoon Milk
* 2 tablespoons Sour cream
* grated rind of one lemon
* Colored sugar for sprinkling

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
Cream together butter, sugar, sour cream, lemon peel and beat well. Add eggs, one at a time, and then add the milk. Gradually, add the sifted dry ingredients, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula as necessary. Beat only until thoroughly mixed. Separate dough in half.
Wrap each batch with foil or plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for 3 hours or longer (DO NOT place dough in the freezer). Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place one batch of dough on lightly floured pastry cloth. Turn dough to distribute flour on all sides and roll out to desired thickness. Cut out the cookies using a heart- shaped cookie cutter.
Transfer cookies to ungreased cookie sheets.
Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with colored sugar.
Bake cookies about 8 to 10 minutes or until they're lightly browned. Transfer cookies to racks for cooling.
