Butter cookies

I published this recipe three years ago in my cooking blog (sorry, is only in Spanish) and, although I've tried some other recipes, none of them is as good as this one, they aren't as good as the danish butter cookies but are quite near.

butter cookies


 - 225 gr. of butter
 - 200 gr. of white sugar
 - 1 egg
 - 375 gr. of flour
 - 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
 - 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
 - Half teaspoon of salt


First of all, we should put the butter out of the fridge for almost an hour, then we would start creaming it with the help of the kitchen aid or a rod, then we add the sugar and keep creaming until having a homogeneus dough.

Then we add the egg, the vanilla essence, the salt and the lemon and keep creaming until it gets homogeneus again, then we add the flour and mix with the mixer or an spoon until all gets integrated, if is difficult for you to keep kneading we should start doing it with the hands until getting a compact and uniform dough.

Then we wrap it in a film and put it in the fridge at least for an hour.

Preheat the oven at 190-200ºC.

Then we will extend the dough over the counter top and cut it with the cookies cutters (you should do it quickly because the butter warms easily and makes dificult to keep the shapes) we put it in the oven tray over a baking paper.

Then we put the cookies in the oven, 180ºC just for 10 minutes.

We let them cool in a rack. Et voilà.
