SOFT BUTTERMILK SUGAR COOKIES

Soft Buttermilk Sugar Cookies - Butter With A Side of BreadI recently found a recipe on the back of the sugar package that looked interesting. Yes, I look at the recipes on the back of the sugar package. Don’t you?! Okay, don’t answer that. At any rate, I made some changes and honestly, these are easily one of the best sugar cookies I’ve ever tasted! They’re soft and pillow-like and they have amazing flavor. I’ve taken them to several family gatherings now and they disappear lightening fast and even my son who doesn’t like cookies raves about them. (I know!! Where did he come from?!) Try them, you’ll love them.

Soft Buttermilk Sugar Cookies

yields 3 dozen cookies

  • 1/2 cup softened butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Cream together butter and sugars for 1 minute. Add in egg, buttermilk and vanilla and mix again until smooth. Combine dry ingredients and add 1/2 to the mixing bowl, mix, then add the other half. Dough will be softer than normal cookie dough and stickier. Cover and let cool in fridge for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Scoop out about 2 TBSP of cookie dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 9-10 minutes and let cool for an additional 2 minutes on the cookie sheet. Transfer to a cooling rack. Once fully cool, frost with about 1 TBSP of vanilla buttercream per cookie. (and sprinkles!)

Amazing Vanilla Buttercream

  • 1/2 cup room temperature butter (1 stick)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 TBSP milk
