"They aren't exactly chewy, however I got RAVE reviews when I made them. I put some "Ande's" mint chips and "Hershey" kisses on top and I didn't even get one cookie! They ate them all. (Good thing I sneaked a bite of the dough and OH BOY yummy!) I made batch after batch of these cookies over the holidays and I ended up getting 1cookie out of about 60 that I made. Lol I'm definitely making these again."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
2 3/4 cups All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 cup butter; softened
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 Egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
3 tablespoons buttermilk; (up to 4 tablespoons)
Sprinkles; or colored sugar

Original recipe makes 4 Servings

Dozen  

Preparation

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.

Notes

You can also roll the cookies in the sugar sprinkles before baking.

Very good and easy to make. Topped off cookies with cinnamon and sugar mixture and others with candy sprinkles. Used sour cream instead of milk... The cookies turned out perfectly chewy. I love this recipe.

These are great and very easy to make. I might add less sugar next time because for me they were way too sweet but the kids LOVED them and said it was their new favourite cookie.

Great recipe! I've used it twice, and both times I've substituted light sour cream for buttermilk, and it turned out amazing!
