Buttermilk Rolled Sugar Cookies

2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon soda
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt

Put soda in milk, stir together baking powder, salt and 1 cup flour. Combine sugar, butter and vanilla. Cream until white. Add eggs and cream well. Add buttermilk and 1 cup flour alternately. Add 4 cups of flour all at once, mix well. Let set 3 to 5 minutes. Roll small amounts 1/4 inch thick and cut with cookie cutter. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees about 10 minutes. Do not over bake. Can be sprinkled with colored sugar or iced.

1 pound powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 stick margarine

Cream together. Add enough canned milk to make spreadable.

* Powdered buttermilk does not have to be mixed separately. I just add the powder with my flour and the water with the my other liquids and let it mix in the batter.
