@ddicted to Cut Out Cookies

After searching high & low for the Pooh n Tigger & Mickey n Minnie cookies cutter, finally I found it from this site. Yay...;)

This recipe was adapted from Happy Home Baking.

BUTTER COOKIES

Ingredients:
(makes about 36 pieces)

100 gm butter, softened at room temperature
80 gm caster sugar
1 egg yolk
180 gm cake flour
(I added more flour b'cos I find it too fragile to handle - about 50gm - 80 gm) (I add till the dough doesn't stick to my hands)
20 gm corn flour

Method:-
  1. Sift cake flour & corn flour together & set aside. Line baking tray with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. With an electric mixer, add in sugar to the butter in 2 ~3 additions & cream till the mixture turns pale & fluffy.
  3. Add in egg yolk and mix well.
  4. Add sifted flour mixture in 2 ~ 3 additions, stir with a spatula to form a soft dough.
  5. Place dough in a plastic bag & flatten with rolling pin.
  6. Refrigerate the dough for about half an hour.
  7. Remove dough from fridge. Roll out dough on slightly floured work surface & cut out with slightly floured cookie cutters. If the dough appears to be a little to hard & breaks into pieces while rolling, leave it at room temperature for a few minutes. The dough will soften up & can be rolled easily.
  8. Bake at pre-heated oven at 175°C for 15 mins.
  9. Let cool & store in air-tight container.
