All Butter Cookies


Maida / All purpose flour                               -2 cups
Butter                                                              -1/2 cup
Sugar                                                               -1/2 cup
Baking powder                                                -1 tspoon
Vanilla essence                                                -10 drops
Chocolate chips/drops                                     -1/2 cup


All the ingredients should be at room temperature.
In a deep big mixing bowl, put everything together into a soft dough. The dough should be soft not stiff. It may seem to be a bit crumbly to you but thats fine.

I made 2 batches once without chocolate chip and one with chocolate chip.
You can divide your dough into 2 parts and in one of the dough parts you can mix white or brown chocolate chips.
Now roll and cut in desired shape.

Stick chocolate drops or candies(Gems) over them .
Preheat your oven to 180°. Place them on the baking tray with the distance of 1 inch each.

Put in preheated oven at 180° for approximately 10-15 mins.
Please check in between as sometimes cookie size and thickness really matters for temperature.
If you want to make the dough with chocolate you can add 2 tablespoon of cocoa powder in it.
Place them on a cooling rack/tray once they are baked and out of oven.

Decorate them as desired once they are cooled. My kids love chocolate so I let them decorate with store bought kids friendly chocolate icing tubes. so they made hearts, swirls and flowers on the cookies.
