Butter cookie

This was the first time I tried my hands on baking. So I was not exactly sure if they were perfectly done. I removed them before the edges begin to brown, but still they were baked perfectly and tasted good! And the recipe is here..


All Purpose Flour (APF) - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1/4 tsp

Salt - 1/8 tsp
Unsalted butter - 1/ cup (1 stick)

Yields 12 biscuits

  1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
  2. Using a hand mixer, cream the butter until soft. Add the sugar little by little and beat until soft and fluffy. Add APF, baking powder and salt and knead well to a smooth dough. Do not add any water. 
  3. Divide the dough into equal balls. Take each dough ball, shape them to round and flaten slightly between palms. Arrange on a greased baking sheet and bake for 15-20 mins or until the cookies are lightly golden brown. Test if the cookies are done by inserting a tooth pick in the center of the cookie, if it comes out clean, perfect!
  4. Remove the cookies from the oven, allow to cool on the baking sheet for couple of minutes and then transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
