How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In very large mixing bowl, beat softened butter or margarine, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk with electric mixer.
  • Sift together salt, baking soda, baking powder, and flour and add to creamed mixture.
  • Roll on floured surface to approximately 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with desired cookie cutters.
  • Bake for approximately 8 to 9 minutes, or until set but not browned.
  • Ovens vary, so this bake time may be slightly less or higher, depending on your oven.
  • Do not over bake!
  • Remove from oven carefully and let cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes before removing from pan.
  • Transfer cookies onto a surface such as counter top covered with paper towels and allow to cool completely. (I find this better for these cookies rather than placing onto wire racks.)
  • This recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies, depending on size of cutters.
  • Frost with buttercream frosting or other frosting and decorated if desired.
