Don’t let the shaping of these cookies scare you. When the cookies are baked, the dough spreads into perfect shapes.


  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 5 cups Pioneer Original or Buttermilk Biscuit & Baking Mix
  • 1 cup sour cream


  • 1 In large mixer bowl, beat sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. With mixer on low speed, add buttermilk, beating to combine.
  • 2 Add Pioneer Biscuit & Baking Mix alternately with sour cream, beating until well mixed. Chill at least 4 hours (dough will be very soft).
  • 3 Work with a small amount of dough at a time and keep remaining dough chilled. On a floured surface, roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into pencil-like strips about 8 inches long and 1/2-inch thick. Shape into a figure-8, pretzel or letter.
  • 4 Place 2 inches apart on a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350°F for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are just beginning to brown. Remove cookies to wire rack to cool.
