Vanilla Butter Ring Cookies January 14 2015
These Vanilla Butter Ring Cookies from Love Foodies were perfect - they seemed to melt away in my mouth. Big surprise - they didn't last long in the house. In fact they barely made it into the next day.
To get everything started, I got the butter, flour, cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract all ready to go.
The flour and sugar was easy enough - but waiting for the butter to soften was too much to handle! Lesson learned: just keep some butter in some tupperware so it is already soft. This is a simple no-nonsense recipe so everything falls perfectly into place.
The batter came together very smoothly. Not a single crumb left over!
I decided to roll my cookies into little spirals since I don't have a cookie gun or any sort of cookie cutter. These cookies don't move an inch. In the second batch, I wound the spirals tighter for a cleaner look.
And voila! Beautiful butter cookies to enjoy at home. These are great with a cup of tea and some ice cream.
3. Add cream cheese and vanilla extract. Red or Green Food colouring may also be added for a ‘Christmas theme’.
