Flower Butter Cookies

I do enjoy making cookies so much, though i'm not a big fan cookies. Moulding and shaping cookies is kinda fun. My first interest in baking was chocolate chips cookies, around two years ago. I was shopping in nearby supermarket, turning round and round dunno what to buy, till my eyes caught a pack of hersheys chocolate chips. And unfortunately it has cookie recipe written on the package. So, thanks to hersheys chocolate chips for giving me inspiration in baking.

Basic taiwanese butter cookies recipe,

120 g unsalted butter, room tempature
60 g icing sugar
200 g cake flour
50 g bread flour
1 whole egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
melted chocolate as required (i use banana flavoured chocolate)

- Beat butter and sugar until slightly pale (do not beat too long, otherwise the cookies won't hold its shape). Beat in egg and vanilla extract, mix well. Sift cake flour and bread flour together and add to the butter mixture.
Roll out the dough and cut with flower shaped cookie cutter. Bake at 175 for 15-18 minutes till golden brown. Decorate with melted chocolate once it cooled off. Store in air tight container.
