This a soft and light cookie - very easy to make. Use a mixer to mix them. They won't be as fluffy if mixed/stirred by hand. The buttermilk and cinnamon give it a wonderful, unique flavor. I have used this recipe for the past 30+ years and they have always turned out perfect. If you want to get fancy, top with ½ candied cherry or pecan half (that's about as fancy as I get) Can also top with raisins for a smiley face.
