       Title: Little Grandma’s Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 120 servings
  
       2 c  Sugar
   1 1/2 c  Butter
       3 lg Eggs
     1/2 c  Buttermilk
   1 1/2 ts Soda
            Vanilla; to taste
       6 c  Flour; about; enough to make
            A stiff dough
            Icing:
   1 1/2 c  White sugar
       2 tb Butter
            Light cream; enough to
            Make creamy. (1/2 & 1/2)
  
       Don't knead too much, very lightly.  Can chill a couple of hours or so.
   Roll out on floured board to about 1/8 to 1/4 and cut out and bake on
   ungreased sheets. Bake at 350 degrees until very light brown on bottom, 6-8
   minutes. Can sugar the top of the dough and roll it in, or frost with
   cooked icing.
   
       ICING:  Combine icing ingredients, just enough light cream to make it
   creamy, and cook to a soft ball stage. Remove from heat and stir until it
   begins to thicken. Spread quickly on cookies.
      ICING II:  2 C. White sugar, 1 tb. butter, 1/2 Cup milk, (enough to
   dissolve sugar).  Cook over medium heat to a soft ball stage. Beat by hand
   until creamy. Spread on cookies quickly.
       These cookies keep great in our old stone jar. Christmas isn't
   Christmas without these cookies, cut with a scalloped cutter, for Santa.
   This recipe has been in my mother’s family since the 1860’s. The original
   was in a newspaper sent in by a lady from Little Turkey, Iowa. Judith
