Aunt Colleen's Buttermilk Cookies (Easy Cut Out Cookies)

Janet Evans, Scottsdale, AZ

2 cups sugar
1 cup Crisco
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup buttermilk
4 to 5 cups of flour
2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp, salt

Cream sugar and shortening and beat in eggs. Add vanilla to buttermilk and add this to sugar mixture alternately with sifted flour, soda and salt. Dough should be stiff, but easy to handle. Chill, then roll out on floured board to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a large cutter and bake until golden around the rims. When cool, ice with powdered sugar frosting. ( I like to add 1/2 tsp. almond extract to the frosting)
