Have you seen my Lime Tea Cookies that I recently posted here? The lime cookies are fluffy, buttermilk-like cookies, and they triggered my memory of this buttermilk cookie recipe. I made them a few months ago with my friend - I was teaching her how to bake...and we were in the mood for some sugar cookies - and these buttermilk cookies turned out absolutely phenomenal. I had only made buttermilk cookies once before this recipe in a foods class at my school, and I thought the cookies we made in class were really tasty - like a fluffy, sugar cookie. These "Mom's Buttermilk Cookies" were the first recipe listed under "frosted cookies" in my Taste of Home: Baking Cookbook, so I knew they had to be delicious when my friend and I decided to make them. And we were totally right. Because all I remember is each of us dancing around the room, finishing off nearly the entire batch of cookies ourselves, saying "Mmmmm...these are SO FREAKING GOOD!" The frosting is the best part. I remember the entire cookie just melted in my mouth and I couldn't stop eating them - especially fresh from the oven. I'm so glad I remembered this recipe...I honestly have no idea how I forgot about them.
