Buttermilk Sugar Cookies: Esme Anderson

If you like sugar cookies, these are THE BEST there is.  They are a little different and they are not the kind that you roll out and cut out.  This is a recipe from a friend from Scotland, and they are to die for.  My mouth is watering as I type this.

1 cup shortening
2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp soda
4 1/2 cups flour

Mix and bake at 350 for 12-15 min (I bake them for 12 min for the first batch and then 11 min after).  Just drop them from a tsp on cookie sheet, no rolling or cutting or refrigerating.

Frosting: 1 cube butter, 1 8oz pkg cream cheese, 1/2 tsp vanilla.  Beat in powdered sugar until good consistency for frosting.

I'm a mommy who has the privilege of staying home with my three little mouths to feed and two big mouths who love to eat. I'm a believer in moderation so all of these might not be the healthiest recipes, but there is a variety and I believe in eating that way and not leaving anything out. I love good food, I like to cook, I'm not that great at it but I'm always up to try new things, share recipes and eat some more!! These are a collection of random recipes that I have in stored in a bunch of different places...this is my attempt to become more organized, so enjoy and let me know if any of these are yummy to you.
