Mother's Tea Cakes

4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1½ cups granulated sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp baking soda
½ cup buttermilk
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, cream sugar and butter until light. Add eggs one at a time; beating after each addition. Stir in vanilla. In a small bowl, dissolve baking soda in the butter milk. Alternately combine dry ingredients and milk. Shape dough into a ball, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes. On a lightly floured board, roll dough to a 1/8" thickness. Cut out cookies with floured cookie cutter and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
