Butter Cookies are classic, tasty and melt in the mouth. They are ideal to binge as snacks after school or during mid- day hunger pangs.

Baking is therapeutic, the aroma  fill my home and rejuvenates my senses, but alas ! I am a novice baker. Somehow, I never make many attempts, I would rather make dosa  or kebab.

Butter cookies are one of the simplest cookies that we can bake, they are tasty and melt in the mouth. I have been making these since many years and these are evergreen, simple yet never out of fashion.

A few other cookies that I have tried are Ghee Cookies, Mocha Cookies,

    My older one loves these cookies and it has been a while since I baked these. Spring break might be a good idea to bake these, right?
