Buttermilk Cookies Recipe, Amish Recipes

Food, hospitality, and culture are all part of the guest experience at the Millersburg, Ohio, Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast.  Guests are treated to homemade cookies awaiting under the dome in our dining room.  Here is our Amish family buttermilk cookie recipe, a classic, uncomplicated, old-fashioned cookie, guaranteed to satisfy all who indulge. 

When in Amish Country, consider purchasing bulk baking supplies at the Ashery Country Store, a favored bulk food store located about two miles north of Mount Hope on State Route 241.  They carry a vast selection of bulk staples, dried fruits and nuts, meats, cheeses, and many mixes and ingredients for most of your baking needs.

Buttermilk Cookies
2 eggs                                                               
2 c. brown sugar
1 c. butter
1 c. buttermilk
3 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. soda
2 tsp. baking powder

Icing
2 1/2 tbsp. butter
5 tbsp. brown sugar
12 tbsp. milk
powdered sugar

In a mixing bowl blend eggs, brown sugar, and butter until creamy; add vanilla.  In a separate bowl combine flour, soda, and baking powder.  Alternately add flour and buttermilk to the creamed mixture.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes or until done.  For the icing, combine butter, brown sugar and milk. Add enough powdered sugar to reach desired consistency.
