Homemade Butter Cookies



As a baking newbie, I'm still at the beginner stage looking for recipe which is simple and straight forward. I managed to get an easy to follow recipe for butter cookies and I didn't hesitate to give it a try. The first attempt did not turn out well, as the cookies were too thick and hard. Majority of the cookies were used to feed Tiger, my pet Chihuahua. Tiger loves it so much and always asking for more.

I never give up. I made 2nd attempt to bake another batch of cookies. I modified the recipe hoping that the outcome will not as hard as the first time's. Well, it didn't disappoint me, I managed to get the result that I was looking for. I have a bottle of the cookies as my Father's Day gift. My dad happily finished up the whole bottle. :) I guess he must have the "sweet sweet" feeling inside him. Hehe...
