Amish Buttermilk Sugar Cookies.
An old-fashioned sugar cookie. Don’t worry if you don’t have buttermilk on hand you can still use regular milk to make this recipe, just add a small spoonful of extra flour. I substitute milk for this recipe all the time. These cookies turn out very soft and moist. My Grandma used to make cookies just like these only she used shortening instead of butter.
This recipe makes about 22 large size cookies. You can make them smaller if you want. I used about a 2.5 Tablespoon cookie scoop so if you used Tablespoon sized scoops the recipe will make more.

These were awesome, made them to use leftover buttermilk. I will make them again, they have a nice plain old fashioned taste.
