Piped butter cookies

What can one do on a Friday evening? If I'm not out on a friday night, I may bake/ watch my favourite Hong Kong drama/ small talk with my parents. And today I decided to bake. Yes, bake!!! My friends like to say there are 101 ways to get from home to town. Likewise for baking. Same type of ingredients may allow you to create more than one type of desserts.

RECIPE adapted from: A Baker's Videoblog (tweaked slightly)

2 cups of plain flour/all purpose flour (sifted)
3/4 cup of icing sugar (sifted)
2 tsp of vanilla extract
250g unsalted butter cut into cubes ( I used President brand for a change )


1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. Line baking tray with greaseproof paper.

2. Cream butter in mixer till fluffy. Sift icing sugar over butter, followed by flour. Mix. Add vanilla essence and mix till combined.

3. Pipe circular shapes onto baking trays. Optional: Place pineapple filling in the middle of the shapes.

4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes till cookies are light golden brown. Allow cookies to cool.

My piping skills are horrible. I need a bigger size star shape tip. Glad the cookies stayed in shape even when baked. I need a new oven too. :) Overall experience: Great. Will I try piping cookie dough again? Oui. Enjoy!

Les sablés ne sont pas très ronds mais ils doivent être délicieux.
A bientôt.
