Buttermilk Sugar Cookies - Happy Easter bunnies!

Posted By Cocoangel on Mar 23, 2008 at 9:19AM

I copied this recipe out of the local newspaper over 20 years ago and I make these cookies for almost every holiday. We like 'em with or without frosting but the decorating is what makes 'em special.

Buttermilk Sugar Cookies - Happy Easter bunnies!


1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Frosting, make your own or use canned
Tinted sugar, decorations, etc.


Cream the sugar with the butter, then add the egg an vanilaa. Sift together the flour, backing soda & salt in a separate bowl. Add the buttermilk, alternating with the dry ingredients. I usually mix in the last bit of flour by hand. Wrap up the cookie dough and refrigerate for a few hours. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Roll the dough on a floured surface to about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness, depending on how thick & soft you like your cookies. Cut with cookie cutters and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes until lightly browned around the edges. Let the cookies cool just a few minutes on the cookies sheets then move them with a spatula to a cooling rack. After the cookies are completely cool frost and decorate for the holiday or occassion.
