Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe was made by my Grandmother's best friend every year for when we all got together at the beach for a week. She has since passed away, and I now continue to make them every year, and also make them at Christmas. They bring back happy memories every time that we bake them.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 c. sugar
2 eggs
½ c. shortening
1 ½ c. buttermilk(regular milk with 1 ½ tbs vinegar added to it)
1 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
3 ½-4 c. flour


Make buttermilk by adding 1 ½ tbs vinegar added to it, let sit for 3 minutes.

Combine all ingredients.

Drop onto cookie sheet, sprinkle with sprinkles. Bake at 450* until lightly brown on the edges.
