Sheila Vella


2 3/4 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 C butter, softened
1 1/2 C sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 to 4 T buttermilk

Preheat oven to 375.

Stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.

In another 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 an ungreased cookie sheet. With spoon or bottom of a glass, slightly flatten each cookie. Moisten the top of each cookie with the remaining buttermilk and sprinkle with sugar or colored sprinkles.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until slightly golden.
