Butter Cookies

The kids were asking for cookies and this is what I found in allrecipes, it does not require too much ingredients and is so easy to make. A good cookie recipe for "on demand" request and when the pantry is running low with all those gourmet ingredients. We just used the regular cookie cutter and added some chocolate chips for fun before baking. 

  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg yolks, 2 tablespoons water, flour, salt and vanilla. Chill the dough.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
  3. Fill the cookie press and shape the cookies on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush the top of each cookie with the egg whites mixed with 2 tablespoons of the water. Decorate as desired.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) until the cookies are golden brown on top, about 10 minutes.
