Simple Butter Cookies (Egg-less)

Today's recipe is Simple Butter Cookies. These butter cookies requires only 4 ingredients and are egg-less. I have this recipe since I started taking my baby steps in baking . I don't even remember from where I got this recipe (obviously from internet but no idea from which site) This  is a very simple and easy recipe and cookies come out delicious each time. Cookies are so buttery and melts right in the mouth.
Thaara loves these cookies. She always helps in making them. She has her own cookie sheet in which she makes her own shapes. When Mom was here last summer I made this and she loved it too. This recipe is dedicated to both my mommy and little Thaara. :) 


Butter, 1/2 cup
Sugar, 1/4 cup
Vanilla extract, 1/4tsp
Flour, 1 cup
Salt, a pinch(optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together and add vanilla to it
  3. Slowly add the sifted flour to this butter mixture and mix well until all the ingredients are incorporated into a soft dough.
  4. Scoop up the cookie dough and roll them into balls and flatten them evenly into discs with fingers . You can press them with fork too. The impression is also decorative for the cookie.
  5. Place them in the cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. 
  6. Bake @ 350F for 12-14 minutes until the edges are slight golden brown. 

  • The butter used has to be in room temperature to get nice cookie dough.
  • I used one tablespoon measuring spoon to scoop the dough and lightly flattened them using fork.
