This is another one of the recipes for the cookie dough in the freezer post.
1 cup butter, at room temp
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup buttermilk
4-1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. each ground allspice, ground cloves and ground nutmeg
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and buttermilk and beat til blended. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice, cloves and nutmeg. Add to the creamed mixture. Shape into 2 – 10″ logs. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.
When ready to bake, slice into 1/4″ slices. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350º for 10 – 12 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
Entire recipe will make about 6 dozen. I divide the dough into 6 or 8 logs, wrap in plastic wrap, place in zipper bags and freeze. When I’m ready to take out a log, I leave it in the fridge overnight before slicing.
Bake just enough for a day or so . .
And I don’t have to eat 6 dozen cookies in one day!
