It’s amazing how good these butter cookies are because they require so few ingredients – chances are you will have every thing you need on hand.
When I first looked at this recipe I thought it should have had baking powder in the ingredients, but it did not. The cookies were prepared as written without baking powder. They were a little flat but they had good texture and are delicious – actually I could not stop eating them.

This is a really simple recipe, give it a try, and enjoy.
