Butter Cookies

It''s Children's Day and I thought I'll bake the kids some cookies. I don't want to bake their favourite though but something that they will still like.

I wanted to make the cookie bigger but didn't have a big star tip. I used another tip and it didn't turn out as nice. Plus I suck at piping.

This cookie is buttery and crumby. I'm glad the kids like it even though the outlook was not as pretty. However, my son said it's not sweet enough for him so I melted some chocolate chips and dip some cookies into it. Kids are so hardto please sometimes. :P

  • 120g Unsalted Butter, soften
  • 70g Icing Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 160g Top Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence

How to do it:
  1. Beat butter and sugar till smooth.
  2. Add egg and vanilla essence and mix well.
  3. Sift in flour and mix well to form a soft dough.
  4. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  5. Put dough into a pipping bag with a star tip.
  6. Pipe onto a lined baking tray.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 15 minutes.
  8. Cool before storing in a airtight container.
