Melt In Your Mouth Butter Cookie Video
This is what Robin has shared on her Youtube Channel.
“Butter cookies are a light and buttery cookie somewhat like a sugar cookie though not as sweet. They go really well with some tea, hot chocolate or coffee. I love them simply by themselves or with a glass of milk.
The only other flavors in this recipe are the extracts of vanilla, almond, and lemon which give them a nice flavor. I used a cookie press for these cookies which is how I remember my husband’s grandmother making these. They are absolutely wonderful.
If you don’t have a press, no worries. You can shape the dough into a log, then refrigerate this dough before slicing 1/4 inch thick cookies. The thinner the cookie, the crispier it will be. I love these because I like how they utterly melt in your mouth they are so light and buttery”
