Butter Cookies

I've given myself the name of Habitual Bookmarker. I bookmark so many recipes from other blogs and sites, that its getting a little out of control. If I made all the stuff I bookmarked, I'd be a happy camper, but they've accumulated and are threatening to hijack my computer if I don't start paying them some attention.

So here goes, the first of the many many that I've bookmarked in the Cookies category. These butter cookies are delicious and would be amazing with a cup of hot tea on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Elsye of Dari Dapur Saya is one of my favorite bloggers - she has lovely photographs with simple recipes that are always spot-on.


Butter Cookies
(recipe from Dari Dapur Saya)

1 cup Butter
1/2 cup Sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C.
Cream the butter. Add the sugar and continue to whip until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and continue to beat.
Fold in the flour. Cover and chill the dough for an hour and a half.
Take the dough out and roll it out. Cut into desired shapes. Bake for 10-12 minutes and cool completely on a wire rack.


Other cookies on this blog: Potato Chip Cookies, Snickerdoodles, Peanut Butter Cookies, Double Chocolate Chip Cookies.

This is off to Trupti for MBP: Kids Food, an event originally started by Coffee.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real income.
It gets down to choose a correct companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
