Since I have recently been making 3 ingredient cookies, I thought why not try to come up with a recipe of your own. This recipe was purely experimentation, however, it worked!
1/3 a cup of softened butter
1/3 cup of sugar
1 cup of all purpose flour
4 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Stand mixer with paddle attachment or a spatula.
First, you will need to pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Mix together your softened butter and sugar. Beat until it turns an off-white color and until light and fluffy. Add in your flour, milk and vanilla. This should form into a dough.
These cookies did not expand with the all purpose, so you could experiment with self rising flour instead, if you like. The non-expansion would be good if you are making cookies in a star or heart, etc. Since, I did not know that they wouldn’t expand at the time, I made mine in balls. Place your dough onto the baking tray and cook for 12 minutes.
