Butter Cookies (Pastisetas)

Is there anyone who doesn’t enjoy butter cookies? You definitely need to try this version of butter cookies as you will probably change your mind. These cookies are soft inside, almost melting in your mouth, with a bit of crispy texture on the outside, buttery and rich. They are great alongside morning tea or coffee or simply as a snack.

The recipe is slightly different from other butter cookie recipes, as the batter is creamy and able to be piped. You need to work as quickly as you can as the batter can harden and makes the piping more difficult. You can make different shapes, and depending on the cookie size the baking time may vary as well.

These beautiful butter cookies are definitely one of the best butter cookies I’ve made so far, totally addictive and really delicious.

    I’ve done this with piping bag (really hard to use), and also without the right (star) tip, but it was still delicious. Can I use this the next time (of course with star tip): https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cake-Cream-Pastry-Injector-Decoration/dp/B007Q93AFU
