This recipe was given to me by the dear ladies from my church and has been a hit with my friends and family every Christmas. Frost with any icing you like.

I've never been a huge sugar cookie baker because they never seemed to come out right...that has all changed with this recipe! My daughter decided she wanted sugar cookies as her thank-you gift at their upcoming wedding so I've been experimenting ever since. The recipe is easy and is the best we've ever tasted. The buttermilk makes a world of difference. Thank you SO much for sharing your recipe!
