2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup shortening (not butter)
1 teaspoon nutmeg
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup buttermilk (just a tad shy of 1 cup)
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

Preparation / Directions:

Mix the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. Beat together the sugar, shortening, and nutmeg in a bowl, then mix in the eggs, vanilla, and the buttermilk. Finally, combine with the flour mixture. Do NOT cover, Refrigerate overnight. Roll out about 1/8" thick and cut with a cookie cutter. Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes I hate buttermilk, but these cookies are good.
