Some recipes for buttermilk cookies include Mom's Buttermilk Cookies, Buttermilk Cookies and Melt-In-Your-Mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies. These recipes are simple and great for weekends or for school parties.
Mom's Buttermilk Cookies are very soft and have an icing to give them an extra rich kick. The ingredients call for butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt and buttermilk. The cookies only take about 10 minutes to cook, then they can be frosted with the butter cream frosting. The frosting recipe calls for butter, sugar, milk, vanilla and walnuts. The walnuts are optional.
The Buttermilk Cookies recipe has a hint of lemon in it from lemon zest. This recipe is similar to the Mom's Buttermilk Cookies, but there is no icing. Instead, the recipe has a glaze made from sugar, buttermilk and vanilla extract. This is additional buttermilk besides what is in the cookie itself, giving it an extra rich taste.
The Melt-In-Your-Mouth Chocolate Cookies recipe calls for two forms of chocolate, both cocoa powder and chocolate chips. The chocolate chips can be milk chocolate or dark chocolate, depending on the taste desired. These cookies have no kind of icing added to them. The chocolate combined with the buttermilk makes for a rich chewy cookie that is packed with flavor.
