Description

Rich in buttery flavor, these cookies are simple and elegant. Drawing inspiration from French butter cookies, this recipe keeps its ingredients simple. Be sure to allow plenty of time for the dough to chill before shaping and baking so that the cookies hold their shape in the oven. Pick your favorite shape of cookie cutter and get to shaping. When the edges have turned golden brown, you will know your cookies are ready.
