Easy Butter Cookies

Our cookie jar is empty.... GASP!

Easy Butter Cookies

It's never happened before but I think me being a little under the weather, I didn't pay attention to it, so I'm refilling it with some quick and easy butter cookies.

Those look so yummy. Wish I had a few and a nice cold glass of milk!
I love the fact it is egg less because we don't always have eggs on hand and those would be the perfect treat to whip up when the sweet tooth attacks and we don't have eggs.

Hi there!

I came across your blog and saw that you enjoy cooking and experimenting with new recipes. Stonyfield Farm makes Oikos Organic Greek yogurt which can be used in a variety of ways while cooking – in baking, as a substitute for sour cream and mayonnaise, in dips and sauces and to create tasty low-fat dishes. Greek yogurt is strained, making it thicker and more versatile in recipes than regular yogurt. Oikos is organic, which means it's made without artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners, and it's made from organic milk produced without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, or artificial growth hormones (rBST). We feel that organic is not only better for you, but better for the planet as well.

I'd love to send you some coupons to give Oikos a try. If you're interested just send me an email at Kdrociak@stonyfield.com and let me know where to send them.

Take care,
Kristina
Stonyfield Farm

I love the simplicity of this recipe, I have all of the ingredients on hand.
I wonder what these would be like with a little cinnamon?
Must add this to next weeks menu!
Thanks Sandra, keep up the good work!

mamakai said...

well there's one way to consume a stick of butter :)

I've got a batch in the oven now, and wondering how they would be made with almond extract

Sandra,

I tried to make these cookies but they just melted into flat buttery blobs in the oven. Where did I go wrong? I used the correct measurements. Is your stick of butter smaller than mine?

Martha (Menagerie) said...

Oh my! These look so good!
Wanted to let you know I'm featuring your sweet and spicy chicken again over at The Krazy Kitchen on Monday :-)

Stacia said...

Sandra, I made these up last night and I love the simplicity of the recipe.
Not only did it take hardly any time to whip up but it took even less time to devour the delicious treats!

Valerie said...

Just wanted to let you know that my little ones have become ADDICTED to your butter cookies. Seriously.

Must be their Danish heritage...LOL!

Simple recipe...simply delicious!

Blessings,
Valerie
