Buttermilk Cookies

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by WyomingMoonDust

These are great for showers, tea times, or just because. These are delicate cookies with an old fashioned taste. I real must in the summer with a glass of lemonade on the side.. I listed shortening or lard. I prefer the lard to be honest. Its not the healtiest choice for some, just the orginal recipe calls for lard. Never messed with perfection when I found it...

I'm not rating this for several reasons. 1) The yield is not logical--almost 4 cups of flour yields 12 cookies? More like 72 cookies, based on other recipes very similar. 2) I wish the chef posting this had mentioned that they were CAKE-LIKE cookies; my family can not stand cake cookies so after making them, I had to gift them away. 3) I'm a very experienced baker but could barely get these onto the cookie sheet; as the other poster said, it was almost a liquid batter, not a dough. Had to put the dough into the freezer to harden up enough to form into cookies. I ate one; it was okay but nothing I'd bother to make again.
