These Buttermilk Cookies are tender, soft and absolutely delicious. Similar to a sugar cookie, but different enough thanks to the buttermilk.
I am a frosting girl, so anytime I can make anything with frosting, I’m all over it.
I can also guarantee that I’ll make more frosting than the recipe calls for because I like my frosting thick. . . the thicker, the better😊.
Because I love frosting, I am a huge sugar cookie gal because duh, sugar cookies = frosting.
When I saw the recipe for these Buttermilk Cookies, I knew I wanted to try them because they’re basically like sugar cookies, minus the rolling and cutting. The frosting of course was one of the reasons, but another reason is because I love buttermilk in baked goods. It adds a lightness and tenderness that is kind of a baker’s dream come true.
These cookies aren’t overly sweet, so the sweet buttercream on top is the perfect addition and makes these cookies pretty fabulous.
Remember the snow day I mentioned last week, and all the baking I did that day? These cookies are one of the things I baked that day, and then sent with my son to work. Within 15 minutes of him being back at his office, I got a text from him saying “everyone loved the cookies!” I think he’s becoming the favorite employee there (lol).
Oh, and one more thing, we thought these cookies were even better the second day :).
Speaking of snow, I REALLY wish it would stop! Does anybody else feel the same?Print
