Butter cookies


Butter Cookies

(adapted & modified from 'The First Book of Baking for Beginners' by Carol)

Ingredients
100g butter
50g icing sugar
2 egg yolks
1tsp Vanilla essence
120g Plain flour
30g Cornflour
10g Milk powder


Method

1. Beat butter & icing sugar until slightly white in colour.

2. Add in egg yolks one at a time. Add in essence.

3. Add in sifted flour, cornflour & milk powder. Mix till combined.

4. Pipe the cookies & bake @ 180
°C for 15mins.


Verdict
: Buttery cookie which melts in your mouth. The original recipe calls for jam to be placed at the centre of the cookies. Silly me should have increase the amount of sugar since I am not using any jam~

Love the hearts you put on the cookies. Very nice piping skills. Did you use a 1M tip?
