Mom’s Buttermilk Cookies
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
Makesabout 3 dozen
You can make these cookies without leftover buttermilk or buying some . JUST MAKE YOUR OWN BUTTERMILK! Measure one cup milk with one tbsp. of white vinegar stir and let it set for a few minutes until it thickens. Works perfect!!! I never buy buttermilk!
I MADE THESE LAST YEAR FOR A CHRISTMAS COOKIE SWAP PARTY AND THEY WERE THE HIT OF THE PARTY.
As my 15 year old drummer son would say, "These cookies ROCK!" I made them, exactly as written. I tinted the frosting pink and added red edible glitter for Valentine's Day. I made a double batch and took them to work and to my son's rock band practice. They were INHALED! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!
These are really delicious. The buttermilk makes them a nice moist cookie. I will definitely make them again!
Okay. Very soft. I did not use the icing as I'm diabetic. I'm sure the icing would have brought it up to a super taste. You could taste the buttermilk and left just kind of a dull taste.
This is a really good recipe! I used a brown butter frosting and the nutty flavor was just right for these cookie--not too sweet. I'm making another batch today for my sis-in-law, and I think I'll try the peppermint frosting. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
When you are looking for a recipe that uses the left over buttermilk that you bought for another recipe (why don't they package the buttermilk in a smaller size than a quart?), these cookies work. They are yummy and so easy to make. The yield is correct (3 dozen cookies). However, when I saw 3 1/2 cups of xxx sugar, I knew that would leave one with too much leftover frosting. So like someone else mentioned here, I made up my own frosting recipe. Three tablespoons butter, 2 cups xxx sugar, 1/3 cup cocoa powder, 1/4 cup buttermilk, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. It made enough to frost all the cookies with just a little frosting left over. Cupcake Princess used 1 cup xxx sugar, but I thought it would not be enough frosting for all the cookies. Next time I will use a little less than 2 cups of xxx sugar, adjust the other ingredients and see if I can get closer to a perfect amount of frosting. So if you make these cookies, it will not be a waste of your time. The recipe is a keeper.

These are the best tasting cookie. I made these cookies for our work christmas cookie exchange and they were a huge success. They are good anytime of the year.
