I often go to a particular shop which sells a very delicious butter cookies. And this day, I thought of making my version. I'm glad it turned out nice. Just need to practice more to achieve the texture I'm looking for.

  2. Whisk butter and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy.
  3. Whisk in the egg then fold in the self-raising flour and vanilla essence.
  4. Put the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth.
  5. Flatten the dough to a thickness of a finger and cut it depending on shapes you want.
  6. Place the shaped dough on baking trays, allowing room for spreading. If liked, stud with flaked almonds.
  7. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, until light browned.
