After making the CNY cookies last month, I sort of fell in love with how easy it is to just bake cookies, so I am on a cookie roll now haha!
My toddler loves cookies, so I usually try to bake some for her. I don’t really like to give her store-bought cookies, because they are mostly made with shortening, and are quite sweet.
These easy butter cookies are nice, despite made using just 4 ingredients. Even the husband who do not like butter exclaimed how “fragrant” these cookies are!

P.S.: Look at the end of the post for a making-of video!
Just take note to soften the butter slightly at room temperature, perhaps about 5 mins in our hot weather. The butter, when pressed slightly, should be soft to the touch and has a slight finger imprint. Don’t let them soften too much, otherwise the baked cookie might turn out to be greasy.
You can use any type of cookie cutter. Just make sure the thickness you rolled out is like the thickness stated in the recipe. After cooling the cookies, store them in any airtight container and enjoy!
