Famous Needs Sugar Cookies

Ingredients:
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:
Mix eggs, shortening, and sugar together. In separate bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together with a fork.  Add flour mixture to shortening mixture alternating with buttermilk, and vanilla.
Mix well - it will be sticky.
Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in fridge overnight.
Roll out and cut cookies. Thickness: a tad more than a 1/4 inch
Bake at 350* for 10 minutes.
DO NOT OVERBAKE!!!
The dough will stay in fridge for several days until ready to  roll out and bake!!  I have frozen these cookies with or without frosting. They thaw beautifully!!!
