Buttermilk Cut Out Cookies

4 c flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp soda

1 1/2 c sugar

1 1/2 c butter

1/2 c buttermilk (or 1/2 c milk plus 1 T vinegar)

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla


Blend the dry ingredients really well.  Cut in butter, real fine like pie dough. Add buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Mix well. (Original recipe calls for hands, but Kitchen Aid works fine.)

Refrigerate overnight.

Next day, roll out on floured board. Cut in shapes. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Frost when cool if desired.
