Easy Butter Cookies

After making the CNY cookies last month, I sort of fell in love with how easy it is to just bake cookies, so I am on a cookie roll now haha!

This cookie recipe is 1 of the recipes I fall on, to bake for my daughter, especially during busy days.
My toddler (super) loves cookies, so I usually try to bake some for her. I don't really like to give her store-bought cookies, because they are mostly made with shortening, and are quite sweet.

These cookies taste quite nice, despite made using just 4 ingredients, and even the husband who do not like butter exclaimed how "fragrant" these cookies are!

P.S.: Look at the end of the post for a making-of video!

I have also tried out doing a simple video for these cookies, so just scroll to the end of the post to watch it!

yield: About 24-26 cookies, depends on sizeprint recipe

Easy Butter Cookies

prep time: 1 hour and 45 MINScook time: 15 MINStotal time: 1 hours and 60 mins


  • 100g butter, cubed and softened to room temperature
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 30g milk, room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g plain flour (or cake flour)


  1. Place softened butter in medium sized mixing bowl. Whisk the butter to slightly softer consistency.
  2. Add in icing sugar and whisk to mix well.
  3. Add in milk and vanilla in 2 batches. Each time of adding in, whisk to mix well.
  4. Add in flour in 2 batches. You can sift in the flour - for me I didn't and I find the cookies texture to be ok - and mix till just combined with a spatula.
  5. Place dough on clingwrap, and chill for about 1 hour.
  6. Remove dough from fridge, and place on non-stick or floured working space. Roll out the dough to 0.3-0.4cm thickness. Cut out cookies using cookie cutter. Place onto lined baking tray.
  7. Preheat oven to 180C, bake for 15-18 min, or till evenly browned. Do watch the oven from 12 mins onwards, as the dough tends to brown quickly towards the end.
