There are cookies and there are cookies. This one, though, should have been named buttery sables. It simply melts in your mouth, which is not surprising considering the amount of butter added. But it’s so worth it because you get such goodness rarely and it must be enjoyed. Christmas time after all!

It’s a sweet, simple recipe to cookie heaven from the book, ‘500 Cookies: The only cookie compendium you will ever need’. It is recommended to have these with some dessert wine.

So here goes –

Makes 35-40 cookies

WHAT WE NEED

All purpose flour                            3 1/4 cups

Confectioner’s sugar                    1 1/2 cups

Vanilla extract                                2 tsp
