These cake-like cookies are a recipe my mom made when I was a kid. They're simple, but delicious...and still my favorite!

  1. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at time. Next, stir in the vanilla and buttermilk alternately with the sifted ingredients. Cover dough and chill overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Generously grease cookie sheets.
  3. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Combine the cinnamon and sugar, sprinkle some of the mixture onto each cookie.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.

I made these for my friends and family for Christmas, and I ran into some problems. My first batch were crisp and they stuck to the bottom of the pan, even though it was greased. We added more flour (maybe a little too much) to get the dough less sticky, and to give the cookies more substance. That worked- too well. They were very floury and thick. So we added more of everything and they came out similar to the first ones, but better. I don't know if it was really worth it, and I don't think I will make these again.


The recipe calls for cinnamon and sugar at the end, but then doesn't say what to do with it...I rolled the (sticky!) balls of dough in it before baking, and they turned out that what's supposed to be done??!


Wow. These cookies were a breeze to make and tasted amazing!
