Since it’s the season for merriment and lots of food and drinks (all different cocktails, vinos – red and white). Me and Airhiz got invited to her friend’s “cookie play date night”, swap cookies and recipes… so what we have in mind is to bake BUTTER COOKIES! I found this recipe…
(SHORTBREAD COOKIES/Butter cookies)
- Preheat oven to 350F degrees F. Prepare two large baking sheets lined with parchment paper or a Silpat.
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add flour and continue to mix until mixture forms a soft dough (it will be crumbly at first, but keep mixing and it will form a dough). Form dough into a cohesive ball with your hands. Using a mixer at medium speed, cream the butter and gradually add sugar. Continue mixing until light and fluffy. Turn mixer on a high speed and add egg whites one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition, then add vanilla essence. Sift the flour 2 times on a wax paper and fold in, blending thoroughly to form a smooth mixture.
- Roll dough 1/4-inch thick on a surface dusted with flour or powdered sugar* with a well-dusted rolling pin. Cut into rounds and place on prepared baking sheets. Repeat as necessary.
- Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until cookies are pale golden brown. Let cool on baking sheets.
