Hi, we are back with yummy tea-time Butter cookies. I made an batch of these during vacation for my folks at Chennai. They loved the cookies, especially the strong butter aroma it had.
These cookies are very soft and they melt easily with every bite. So, these can be suggested to elders as well. With the basic recipe of the cookies given below, you can play around with your own flavours like cinnamon, lemon etc, if you want to omit pistachios. The following batch yielded about 45 cookies, do try and let us know.
- 100 grams unsalted butter
- 62 grams castor sugar
- 1 tbspn vanilla extract
- 125 grams All purpose flour
- 1/3 cup sliced salted pistachios, that are double-roasted
- Green gel colour
In an bowl, add butter, sugar and extract and whisk well. Add in gel colour and whisk again.
Finally fold in flour and pistachios and keep folding till an soft dough is formed.
Cover this soft dough in an cling wrap and roll them into log, I made mine an rectangular rod and refrigerated for an minimum of two hours.
Pre-heat the oven to 165 degree celsius. Take out your log and slice them. Place them in parchment paper lined baking tray. Refrigerate this set-up for few minutes.
Bake these for about 10 to 15 minutes, till the edges brown. Time depends on the thickness of each slice, I recommend to uniformly slice the log, per batch, otherwise the cookies might get overbaked. Cool them completely over wire rack. Store in air-tight container.
Enjoy these with your tea-time. Happy Baking :)
