So yummy! This is now a regular in our Christmas rotation. Chilled some of the dough, rolled into balls then in sugar before baking for a sweet crust on the outside, and this turned out well, too.
Yay! these were delicious and so easy...perfect for my first time making cookies since i was a little girl. now that I'm a mom, I decided it's time to start learning how to bake, and these cookies were perfect. they really do taste like shortbread, just the right amount of sweetness! next time i'll make a double batch because these were gone in less than 24 hours :) p.s. thanks to everyone on the forum for your tips for this novice baker!
Great recipe! Very delicate taste and texture. I reduced the vanilla extract and added lemon extract instead. So good! Thx!
The perfect simple and tasty cook recipe.
It's no joke, these are the best. I'm extremely particular about my butter cookies, and I've been looking for the perfect recipe for ages - here it is! These are amazing with and without icing, as all of my friends who gobbled them up agree. I will be returning to this page!
Yummy!!! I just made these for Valentine's day. I slightly under baked them and I loved them. I must confess, I think I have almost eaten them all so I must make another batch for the weekend. I added a spritz of old fashioned butter cream frosting and tinted bright pink and finished off with some white non-perils. Next time I will be rolling them out a little thinner to get them more crisp. They a very delicate in their flavor and I actually liked less frosting on them because the cookie was so delicious. Thank you so much for this recipe. The only problem I have is I don't want to share my cookies :)
Like many, I have been in search of the PERFECT butter cookie. I was kind of disappointed in this- as that I'm sure there's a better one out there. I followed recipe- and it was "okay" ... but no the world's best. I whipped up a chocolate frosting (melted 1/2 cup chocolate chips with 2 tbs butter, powdered sugar, almond flavoring and a touch of half/ half) and spread onto the cookies to try to liven them up. Won't make again- and if anyone wants to reply with another recipe link, please do. I love butter cookies!!!
Okay, I have to say this is the best butter cookie recipe ever. I had the High School Butter Cookie recipe everyone loves, but it fell short. I got it online. The cookie was not quite exactly like the butter cookie I remember from school. This recipe is it. My other recipe did not have the egg yolk. What a difference it makes! The cookies came out buttery, flakey, with still a crisp to them, exactly as I remember them from High School. They just melt in your mouth. I highly, highly recommend this recipe. Hurry and make them you will not regret it!
These were good. The flavor was delicate, the texture was just right between crisp and soft. I had a hard time making my roll round, so the cookies came out a little funny, but I'm not picky.
I have made these for several years, I dip them in chocolate for gift giving.
