A super tasty cookie recipe for salted butter cookies. Really simple and the butter and pinch of salt gives a wonderful flavor.
My new years resolution (one of them) is to eat as healthy as possible. But something sweet is definitely on our daily menu (but not to often). But when we eat it, I want to eat this as pure as possible. Without E-numbers, colouring liquids etc.
That's almost impossible to find in a grocery. And if you find it, it costs a fortune. As you know by now, I'm a fan off Dorie Greenspan. She writes delicious recipes. So I wanted to try a cookie recipe, which I missed in the last year of French Friday with Dorie, because I was late with applying to this group.
But I read a lot of positive reactions about this recipe.
So I wanted to give it a try. Dories original recipe was made of one big cookie. I didn't dare that. There would be a fight on a regular basis between my boys which one would get the biggest (in their opinion). So I decided to take a cookie cutter, and they are supposed to be the same size (and it worked quite well).
My boys were smelling the cookies in the living room when I was baking them, and they didn't leave my site until they were cold enough to eat. That's definitely a good sign.
And they liked them a lot.
So I got a new recipe for making cookies. Hope you enjoy it also.
It's a good taste!
