I know I’ve mentioned it before, but my mom is a fabulous cook and baker. And if there is one thing she hates, it is making the same recipes over and over. She is adventurous and growing up in her house , there was always something new to try. She discovered this recipe for Soft Buttermilk Sugar Cookies from a favorite Taste of Home cookbook. Don’t they look scrumptious? They are!
- ½ cup shortening
- 1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
