They simply melt in your mouth leaving behind a subtle buttery flavor!
Yes, I am talking about the simplest and yummiest ever cookie recipe one can come across, the butter cookies. They basically need three major ingredients; butter, sugar and flour. You can do alterations of flavours as per your taste. I paired them with toffee caramel sauce and dry roasted almonds. Almonds make an amazing pair with butter cookies. A little vanilla essence is must in the recipe to give freshness and also it takes away extra buttery smell.
You can make these cookies in gas oven, pressure cooker or even in a kadhai! They are easy to prepare and bake. They can be stored for 15-20 days in an airtight container. Also, the cookie dough itself can be refrigerated for a week. Do give this simple recipe a try and share with your loved ones.
