A super tasty cookie recipe for salted butter cookies. Really simple and the butter and pinch of salt gives a wonderful flavor.
I love to bake cookies. As you know by now, I'm a big fan of Dorie Greenspan. She writes delicious recipes. Dories' original recipe was made of one big cookie. I didn't dare that. There would be a fight 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).
And they were gone!
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. And I hope you also enjoy them.
