4 cups flour plus more for rolling
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl sift flour, baking soda, and baking powder together. Add remaining ingredients and blend well. Dough will be soft and wet. On a floured surface shape the dough into a disk, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Flour surface again and roll dough out until approximately 1/4 inch thick. Cut dough into desired shapes and bake on a slightly greased sheet pan for 10 to 12 minutes.
