Butter Cookies

These butter cookies is so delicious and literally melt in your mouth. One of my kids favorite cookies. Each time I baked these, they snatched it so fast and voila after a while my cookie tin is empty!

These cooking could become a project with your children and bake it together. Share these with your family and friends!

Perfect for your afternoon tea/coffee, each bit of the buttery cookies will literally melt in your mouth. It’s hard to stop eating after the first bite.


  • 150r plain flour / all-purpose flour
  • 3gr corn flour / corn starch
  • 20gr custard powder
  • 160gr butter, softened at room temperature
  • 50gr icing sugar
  • 1/4tsp vanilla extract
  • 1tsp baking powder

How to prepare:

  • Combine the plain flour, corn flour, custard powder  and baking powder and sift through a sieve. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter and icing sugar until fluffy and pale. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  • Sift in the flour mixture. Beat at low speed with an electric mixer. Remember to scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
  • Lightly knead into a dough. Wrap with a plastic film and roll into a tube in 3½cm thickness.
  • Wrap it up and refrigerate for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until it’s workable.
  • Preheat oven to 180C / 356F. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  • Remove the dough from refrigerator.
  • Slice into 1½cm-thick portions.
  • Place each portion in single layer on the lined trays, each at least 3cm apart.
  • Use a lightly greased fork to gently press the small dough.
  • Bake in preheated oven, for about 15 minutes, or until lightly brown. Remove from oven and let them sit for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer to a wire rack until completely cool down.


  • If you don’t have two baking trays or your oven is not big enough, you can bake in two batches. Keep the rest of the dough in refrigerator.
  • If the weather is too warm, you find the dough is too greasy. Don’t worry. Just chill the dough for awhile until workable.
  • I love simple cookies with a rustic look. You might like to use a cookies cutter or any moulds to make some delicate patterns on your cookies.
