Vanilla scented Butter Cookies

It has been a long time since I baked cookies. Well, I feel they are my forte and so I try out other items and when depressed go back to cookies. Jokes apart, I baked these simple to make yet rich and delicious cookies from Divya, not to overcome baking slump, because I knew they would be an instant hit. And I was right, they vanished within minutes. Now if you feel they will be sitting as calories on your waist, then proceed to read the recipe at your own risk, but I would make these for sure in double or triple batches. :P.

All Purpose Flour: 1 cup
Sugar: 1/2 cup
Salt: 1/4 tsp

Butter: 1/2 cup 
Vanilla Extract: 1 tsp

Milk: if needed : 1 tbsp at a time

Mix together flour,sugar and salt in a big bowl. Melt butter and keep aside. 

Make a well in the centre of the flour mix and add in vanilla and melted butter. Gently bring together and optionally using milk  knead to form a soft smooth dough. Pinch 1 tbspful or handful of piece from the dough, shape into ball and then press into flat disc. Place the disc onto a lined baking sheet and repeat the process for the rest of the dough.

Bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 360F/180C for 10-12 minutes or more until you see edges browning. Take out of the oven and allow the cookies to cool completely or atleast little warm on the baking sheet. 

Perfect teatime or anytime snack is ready to be devoured.

Crunchy delicious cookies very buttery and vanilla scented. Make and taste these while this one goes to Radhika for BlogHopWednesdays -8.
