This is the sugar cookie recipe we published in February.
1 c. butter
2 c. sugar
1 c. buttermilk and beat well
1 Tbsp. vanilla
½ tsp. soda and salt
4 tsp. baking powder
5 c. flour
Mix all ingredients well. Add flour last.
Set in covered container in refrigerator for at least three hours. Dough will set up more during this time. (The dough will be soft.)
Roll into good size dough balls and flatten with a flat surface (I used my measuring cups). Place on greased cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees. DO NOT brown! Makes four dozen cookies.
Cream Cheese Frosting
5 Tbsp. salted butter, softened
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 c. powdered sugar
