Certain treats are tradition at our house, one being soft sugar cookies. If I don’t make them for Valentines Day, Halloween, and Christmas I am in big trouble. We love soft cookies and these are always soft unless you over cook them.
Soft Sugar Cookies
Cream the butter and sugar together. Add eggs and mix well. Add buttermilk and vanilla. Sift together dry ingredients and add to egg mixture and stir until well blended. Chill for at least 1 hour. Roll 1/4″ thick and cut with cookie cutter. Place on grease cookie sheet. Bake 350 degrees for 8- 10 minutes. Cool and frost with Butter Cream Frosting in your favorite holiday colors. Decorate with sprinkles or pipe on frosting.
