How to make it

  • DIRECTIONS
  • Cream together the shortening and the sugar. Stir in the egg, buttermilk and vanilla.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and stir to combine. Chill dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Drop mixture by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. If desired sprinkle tops of cookies with white sugar before baking.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
  • Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 7 to 9 minutes or until set.
  • (note, I used some colored sprinkled sugar as well as white)

    Personally, they were a waste of my time and ingredients. Both my wife and I tried eating two of them. I immediately dumped them in the trash can. They did bake nicely. I will keep looking for a GOOD SOFT SUGAR COOKIE RECEIPT.

    I like your idea of using butter instead of shortening. You have my 5 and I am saving this recipe. I have also added it to my colection of buttermilk recipes. I would love it if you would join the group.
