Button Cookies

Want to post again a cookie. But, what ? while browsing the pinterest, I saw an picture of Button Cookie and liked the shape.

To do this shape, I need a flexible dough. The choice is only All Purpose Flour. i.e the simple cookie recipe. 

Again, don’t want to use 100% All Purpose Flour (AP). I always avoid using AP because, the fiber is completely removed and less in protein. Hence, High in Calorie (metabolize like Sugar)

So, 50% AP and 50% Wheat flour.  it turnout to be my satisfaction.  

The Ingredients are,   ½ Cup of All purpose flour      ;   1/2 cup of Wheat flour     ;    115 Gms of  Butter (soft)       ;   ¼ cup of  Sugar  ;  Vanilla essence     -  1 tsp 

For design we need a big cookie cutter to cut a cookie and slightly smaller one to make an impression. Straw or icing nozzle round tip to make hole (buttons)

Procedure : Beat butter with sugar till it turns into pale in color and add vanilla essence. Mix both wheat flour and AP flour in separate bowl and slowly add the flour mixture to the butter.

Blend well till the flour and butter combined well.  Shape the dough into ball shape and cover it with cling wrap. Keep it in the fridge for about 30 min 

Roll the dough on the floured surface for 1 cm thickness and using the big 2’’ circle shaped cookie cut it and with small cutter just press it to make impression. (Only Impression)

In Center of cookies with icing nozzle make four holes like buttons (dip the nozzle in the flour, will make life easy)
Arrange the cookies in baking tray and keep it in fridge for 20 min and bake it in a pre-heated oven at 180°c till cookies are done.
