Description

I love, love, love sugar cookies. So, when I found this recipe several years back, my search for the best was over! The key ingredient is the buttermilk (and tasty frosting). This is my most requested recipe for all events I attend. Make these and you will be eating them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner … so, be careful!

Ingredients

  • 5-½ cups Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 4 sticks Softened Butter
  • 3 cups White Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 6 Tablespoons Buttermilk
  • _____
  • FOR THE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:
  • 1 stick Butter, Softened
  • 4 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • Milk, Enough To Reach Desired Consistency
  • Food Coloring

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until somewhat smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. In another bowl, stir together the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed ingredients. Mix well. Add the buttermilk to make the dough soft, not wet.

Roll into medium/small balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake until done. How do you like that? After about 12 minutes, check them. Wait until the edges barely start to show a golden color, which could take up to 15 minutes, or so. (To be honest, I can’t remember how long to cook them. There, I said it.)

Remove from the oven and let them rest on the cookie sheet for several minutes. Then let cool on wire racks or a towel. Frost with yummy buttercream frosting (combine frosting ingredients until smooth). Go easy on the frosting because the cookie is already pretty sweet. I like doing a little squiggle. :)

Enjoy!

Tasty, but didn’t turn out quite as I’d hoped. I’ll probably give them another shot, though!
