Grandma's Old-Fashioned Teacakes

I just love these teacakes! My grandmother made them for us when we were young, and I made them for my children. I had them on my mind the other day, and thought I'd make a batch this morning. They are crisp, sweet and very good with coffee. I suppose I was thinking of the children when I realized I was pouring this glass of milk!


1-cup butter soften
2-cups sugar
2-Tablespoons buttermilk
5-cups flour
1-teaspoon baking soda
1-teaspoon vanilla


Cream butter, gradually add sugar, beat well til smooth. Add eggs 1 at a time . Beat well after each addition. Add buttermilk, beat well.
 Combine flour and soda; stir in vanilla to creamed mixture, then gradually stir in flour mixture. Chill dough an hour or until workable. Flour surface and roll dough out to 1/4 thickness. Flour desired cookie cutter and cut out rounds.
Place 1-inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 400 degrees for 7 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool. Yields about 4 dozen. Enjoy!
