How to Make Butter Cookies: The shortbread is one of the easiest recipes to make cookies. When I started to make them really flip, because they were so simple that now I do not stop doing them, we can also freeze the dough and take it out whenever we feel like to bake a few. Perfect to dip in the coffee, a real delight.
If you are passionate about cookies, other times I have made other recipes such as these delicious cinnamon cookies, the famous chocolate cookies or even some crackers of Parmesan cheese (I recommend trying them).
If you are new to making homemade cookies, do not hesitate to start with this recipe.

How to Make Butter Cookies at Home
1.- In a bowl, we begin by mixing the butter with the sugar. Remember that the butter must be at room temperature to work well with it. We mix very well.
2.- Once mixed, add the teaspoon of vanilla essence.
3.- We continue with the sifted flour. We pass the flour through a sieve before adding it to the bowl. We mix very well.
4.- Now it’s time to give them shape. The easiest thing is to make a roll as you see below with the help of plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for 1 hour or so. From there, what we will do is “cut slices” of about 1 cm and bake them.
5.- We put them on a cutlery tray and bake them at 180º for about 11-12 minutes. The moment we see that the edges begin to brown, we remove them. If you see that they are soft, do not leave them anymore because I once made that mistake, when they get cold they harden. So do not worry if you play any and you see it soft.
