My first : 3 ingredient butter cookies

Preparation time : 30 minutes

Baking time : 15 to 45 minutes ( depends upon the oven capacity)

Ingredients :

  • 1 cup / 250 grams softened unsalted butter at room temperature ( white butter can also be used as well)
  • 1 cup finely powdered sugar ( sieve if possible )
  • 2 1/4 cup of all purpose flour

Cooking method


  • Make sure the butter is at room temperature such that it should be in a softened texture , powder the sugar to a fine texture at the same time.
  • In a bowl add the softened butter and beat the butter until it becomes fluffy and creamy texture.
  • To make it more specific after beating the butter , it should turn light yellow in color and fluffy , beating can be stopped at this step.
  • Now add the powdered sugar to the beaten butter and once again beat it well.
  • The powdered sugar should be well incorporated with the butter and it should form a creamy texture as well.
  • After the sugar and butter are well combined add the flour together in a whole and use a hand beater or spatula to combine the flour with the mixture ( mix it slowly)
  • Once the flour is almost mixed and in crumble form , use your hands to kneed the dough.
  • Now the dough should not be kneaded so much and for a longer time.
  • Knead the dough in such to combine all the remain flour and forms a ball shape.
  • Now make the dough into 2 halves and roll each of the cookie dough into a cylindrical form , such that no cracks are formed.
  • Once the dough kneaded in cylindrical form, take a knife and start cutting the dough in small cookie shapes.
  • Line the cookie in a oven tray with sufficient gap in between , Dont overload the tray.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 or 190 degree Celsius ( 350 Fahrenheit ) for 10 minutes.
  • After the oven is preheated place the tray and set the timer to 15 – 20 minutes.
  • Check once 15 minutes is over and if the cookies turned light brown and slightly big , take the cookie out from the oven.
  • In order for the biscuits to be crispy enough allow the biscuits to cool well.

Note : if baking in two batches no need to preheat the oven second time. ( as the biscuits will be overcooked.
