BUTTERY COOKIES




I won't talk much about these utterly butterly melt in mouth cookies which no one can deny having. 

With so much craziness going in life this blog keeps me motivated and focussed on things I love and want to do and when it comes to baking cookies are my favourite bet as they are easy and super quick. 

Last night I was feeling very lazy and thought of not making them. Then I thought nooo it is Independence day and I have to make something. It might sound corny but  honestly even after staying for almost 7 years in The US, my heart still crave for where my roots belong. 

These Buttery cookies just need 3 ingredients, and I am pretty sure that whosoever will have it will get hooked. 

Let's get rolling:


INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups flour ( I have used wheat flour) 
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup salted butter 
  • Tutti fruity in green and orange colour (Optional)
  • 4 drops pineapple essence (optional)


METHOD:

  • Preheat the oven at 350 F ( 175 C) 
  • Line the baking sheet with parchment paper 
  • In a large bowl add butter and powdered sugar. Using a hand blender blend until creamy. 
  • Now sieve the flour and add essence if using. Mix together to form a dough. 
  • If it is too soft and not manageable place it in the refrigerator for 1/2 an hour. I always keep it to firm up the dough  as it is too hot here.. 
  • Now using a rolling pin roll the dough about 1/4 inch thick. Make sure you  powder the surface with powdered sugar to prevent sticking. 
  • Using cookie cutter,cut down into desired shapes and press tutti fruity on the cookies. This is totally optional.
  • Place them on the baking sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Keep the baking sheet on the second rack from the bottom.Keep an eye for the last 3 minutes to prevent burning:-)
  • Let the cookies cool down on the cookie rack 
  • Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea or even as a light dessert.
