Place butter and xylitol in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until smooth and incorporated, about 1 minute. Mix in sour cream, eggs, and vanilla until combined. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to liquid mixture, mixing on medium speed until a dough forms. (dough will be slightly sticky) Wrap cookie dough in plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour.
Roll chilled dough into 1-in balls and place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake cookies at 350F 11-12 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft) With the bottom of a glass, slightly flatten cookies. Cool cookies on baking sheet 10 minutes before removing to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Once cookies are cooled, drizzle with icing if desired.
Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
