Butter cookies are one of the most simplest and easiest cookies to bake. Cookies are basically small baked treats which are usually sweet. They are often made using flour, butter, sugar and eggs. But this is an eggless version and i am sure you will not miss it as they are so tasty. Just knead together these few ingredients, pinch small balls, flatten and place it in the tray and then into the oven and voila, sweet smelling and delicious cookies are done. This recipe makes approximately 14 mini cookies. You can also make normal sized cookies and increase the proportions to make more cookies.


2/3 cup Maida (All purpose flour)
1/3 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp rice flour
½ tsp vanilla essence
Milk (1 or 2 tsp if necessary)


Keep all the ingredients of the recipe ready and make sure that the butter is at room temperature but has not melted. Take a bowl, add butter and powdered sugar and mix well with a whisk to form a smooth paste. Then add vanilla essence and mix well. Next add maida and rice flour and knead to form a smooth but firm dough. (Add milk only if necessary). Preheat the oven at 160 degree Celsius for 10 minutes. Meanwhile grease and slightly flour a baking aluminium tray, grease your hands and take small balls from the dough, flatten them and place on the tray. Place it in the central rack of the oven (I use a Prestige otg) and bake for about 20 minutes (with upper and lower rods on) or until the lower part turns slightly brown and upper part looks firm. (Tip: You can open the door of the oven after about 15 minutes and use a spatula to move the cookies. If it moves easily from its place, then it’s done) Remove the baking tray from the oven and allow the cookies to cool down completely. Transfer the cookies to an airtight container. Serve butter cookies with tea.
