Cookies in Sugar and Butter


It's love month so even if it's cheesy, I still made a heart shape and a girl and a boy shaped cookies and if you want something to give that you made with your bare hands (literally!) to your loved ones this love month then why not bake some butter or sugar cookies.

The one in the above photo is the butter cookies which my family loves more than the below sugar cookies because it's less sweeter and well more buttery, what more can I say about that.  The sugar cookies is more colorful though because I added red colored icing on top of each cookie for a playful touch.

Both of these cookies almost have the same ingredients and procedure to make, the only difference is the amount in the ingredients.  Oh this is my first time to knead and roll a dough and at first it's really hard take out the cut -out shapes off the table, constant dusting and a good spatula is needed to prevent the shapes from deforming.
