Buttermilk Cookies

These are simple cookies that have a yummy flavor to them - making them more interesting than a sugar cookie. In the Fall they’re great with cinnamon + nutmeg, but for Spring I wanted to pair them with citrus. It makes quite a bit, which means you have a lot of cookie eating to do. Hop to!  

1/2lb butter

2 cups sugar 

2 eggs 

1 tsp vanilla 

4 cups flour 

2 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt 

1 cup buttermilk 

1 tsp lemon zest 

Beat the butter + sugar until creamy. Add in the eggs + the vanilla. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Once combined add in the liquid + the zest. Scoop BIG spoonfuls onto a lined tray + freezer 30 minutes to 1 hour. 

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or until the tops are fluffy and the bottoms are brown. 

You can frost yours too! I made a buttermilk frosting (just sub the cream you’d use for a frosting with buttermilk). Delish.
