So I have a few cups of buttermilk left over from a spice cake I made. Making several cakes tomorrow for a big tiered snowflake creation. I want to stick to a white cake, (been making too much spice cake!) but want to use up this buttermilk. Any ideas? Thanks in advance guys!

Make some buttermilk pancakes for breakfast tomorrow! Yum! or some biscuits to go with dinner... or you could just freeze it for the next time you need buttermilk. I'd probably go with the pancakes and throw in some chocolate chips or blueberries icon_smile.gif

This won't use tons of your buttermilk, but it's one of my absolute favorite cookies!

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, stir 2 3/4 cups flour, 1 t. baking soda and 1/2 t. baking powder. Set aside. Cream 2 sticks softened salted butter (no substitutions) and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Beat until fluffy. Add 1 egg and 1 t. vanilla. Beat well. Add dry ingredients and blend until mixed. Add 3-4 T. of buttermilk to make a soft, but not wet, dough. Scoop dough into balls. Dip tops of balls in buttermilk, then roll in raw sugar (raw sugar can be found in 2 pound boxes in the baking isle). Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. These cookies spread, so don't place too close together. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden.
