Butter cookies

 
 
 
 
 





I remember well the day I made these cookies, I was alone on the beach and really wanna make something nice and I think is these cookies (always I travel with some cookbooks ) normally I dont make a lot of cookies like my lovely friend Betsy (she really make wonderful cookies) and you can see her recipes in her blog My five men. A lovely blog:)

Anyway I find these cookies delicious, and is important be quiet when make something like these, by the oven (are so fast) and to enjoy, anyway all we have a blog recipes is to enjoy the lovely pleasures of life, and sharing with our lovely friends don't you think?

Ingredients
 
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
6  tbsp unsalted butter softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
 
Method
 
1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.
Mix well and set aside.
 
2.Beat butter with and electric mixer on medium speed.
Gradually add sugar and beat until mixture is light and fluffy.
Beat in egg and vanilla, then reduce speed and add flour mixture, mixing until just combined.
Divide dough in two portions and wrap in plastic.
Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
 
3. Preheat oven at 180°
Roll out one portion of dough on a floured surface, (if is needed add some flour to roll better)cut into desired shapes, arrange about 1" apart on buttered nonstick baking sheet and decorate as desired.
I put 1/2 almond, peel in each one.
Bake for about 5 minutes.
Rotate baking sheets, then continue baking cookies until golden, about 5 minutes more.
Transfer cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool.
Repeat process, rolling out, cuting and baking remaining cookies.

Galletas de mantequilla





 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


Hace unos dias para el 18 fuimos a la playa.
Normalmente  no hago muchas galletas no sé porque no como mi amiga Betsy que hace unas
estupendas galletas y pueden ver sus recetas en su blog My five men.
Ella es encantadora.
Bueno cuando estaba en la playa sola y tranquila (todos habian salido) pensé en hacer algo como galletas, hay recetas que hay que hacer tranquilas con todo el tiempo del mundo. además el horno de la playa es estupendo, Las cosas quedan muy bien.
Había hecho solamente pizzas y cosas por el estilo.
Abreviando (no quiero aburrirlos) las galletas les fascinaron a todos. Asi que las recomiendo.
Esta receta está basada en una de Saveur.

  53. Nothing like enjoying 'the lovely pleasures of life'. We must learn to capture them since they seem to vanish all too quickly and almost as fast as they goggle up your delicious cookies. In my eyes, you are a supreme chef/baker. And I must admit, I've referred to you several times at the dinner table with your wonderful recipes/photos/talent. So thank you for bringing those lovely pleasures of life to us here along the corridors of your blog. *hugs*
