Fail Proof Soft Sugar Cookies

These are so so good!! PLUS, if I can make them work then this recipe is really is fail proof. I have never had any look with sugar cookies, and these turned out perfect! So, here it is! I won't make you wait anymore.

Fail Proof Soft Sugar Cookies

1 cup Shortening
2 cups Sugar
1 cup Buttermilk
2 Eggs
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Vanilla
6 cups Flour

Cream shortening and sugar together until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add salt and baking powder to the first 2 cups of flour. Alternately add buttermilk and 2 cups of flour mixing well after each additional cup. Add more flour if needed to make a soft sticky dough. Turn out dough on to the counter with remaining flour and lightly knead. Roll out dough to 1/2 in thick and cut out cookies. Bake at 400 degrees and bake for no more than 10 min. Cookies should be pale and soft to the touch. This recipe makes a lot and they freeze really well.
