Ingredients
Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in dry ingredients. Add enough of the buttermilk to moisten the dough and make it soft, not wet.

Roll rounded teaspoons of dough into balls and place on a ungreased cookie sheet. With a brush or fingers, moisten the top of each cookie with the remaining buttermilk and slightly flatten the top of each cookie. Sprinkle with raw sugar or colored sprinkles.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly golden. Let stand for 2 minutes before removing to cool on a rack.

We made these as the directions stated and they turned out great! I didn't have buttermilk so I used 1c regular milk with 1Tbs apple cider vinegar and it worked just fine. They were so easy I let my two children under 7 yrs make them from beginning to end(with verbal institutions) and they came out perfect. This will certainly be our go to sugar cookie recipe from now on. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Best sugar cookie recipe for me yet. My son even told me these were the best cookies that I've ever made :) Super easy recipe too. I've made so many batches of these already for Christmas and now for New Years and they consistently come out awesome. Chewy and crunchy all at once. Fabulous! Love them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a fantastic recipe!! We didn't have time for roll outs this Christmas so I looked for a simple one. Easy and tastes wonderful and not overly sweet. I love that it is crunchy around the edges but chewy in the middle. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awful. Too much butter, and too much sugar. They were far too sweet and soupy. They spread all over the cookie sheet, and I had to add a lot of dry ingredients to make them somewhat salvageable. Even still, they were terrible. Never using this recipe again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
