Butter Cookies

These crispy butter cookies taste better than store-bought ones and are so easy to make. They are just 3 ingredients and don’t require any eggs. The cookies come out very crispy, buttery and sweet. They are perfect for gifting.

I love eating butter cookies, especially this time of year and I can never resist buying a few tins of Danish butter cookies. But most of the time I’m actually disappointed with the ones I buy. These homemade butter cookies taste so much better. They are so crispy, buttery and have just the right amount of sweetness.
