Butter Cookies

These Butter Cookies remembered me the Butter Biscuits. During my childhood, i remember my mom used to send all the necessary ingredients for the butter biscuits in big buckets(thooku) to our nearby town villupuram. Our Helper Pushpa takes them to some bakery in villupuram and comes home with butter biscuits taking pain in lifting all along thru bus. Life at villiage surely lacks luxuries but i bet, They are Full of Memories!!

S shaped Cookies

These were Melt in mouth kind of cookies, and at home we all loved it much. When there is so much of butter will it go wrong?

Recipe for Butter Cookies:
Makes about 40 cookies
Recipe from : http://e-bookdown.com/311-cakes-and-bakes.html

Ingredients:

3/4 Cup of Butter (at room temp)
3/4 cup of powdered sugar
1 egg
2 cups of All Purpose Flour / Maida
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda

Butter Cookies

Method:

Pre-Heat the oven at 180C for about 10 mins. Line the Baking tray with butter paper or aluminium foil sheet.

Whisk a egg and keep it seperate.

In a mixing bowl, put the butter and powdered sugar and whisk until light and fluffy either with your hand mixer or a whisk. add the whisked eggs.

Sieve the flour with baking powder and baking soda for about 2 or 3 times. add the sieved flour to the mixing bowl and gently fold in. make sure to mix with spatula and fold the flour gently.

Pinch a small amount of dough, roll it with your palms to the thickness of your finger, place it on the butter paper and shape it in "S" shape.

Give enough space between cookies, so that it can expand while baking.

Bake the cookes at 180C for about 12-15 mins, till you see the bottom of the cookies turn golden in colour.

Cool the Cookies after baking and transfer them to an air tight container.

I also made round cookies, as i did not have patience to shape all the 40 cookies. S shape was much loved by the kid! It will be a great school snack and party snack!

Note:

1.You can give egg wash over the cookies to get crisp cookies. this cookies can also be prepared without eggs.

2.The Cookie Dough can be wrapped up with cling wrap and cooled at fridge. after cooling, knead them gently and roll them off into 1/2 inch thickness. you can then use cookie cutter over the rolled dough and furthur bake them.

3. The Actual recipe used silvered almonds as the topping to the cookies, do try it out to.
