I chose this recipe because of its simplicity. Butter cookies are simple, fast and incredibly delicious. They do not require any cooking skills whatsoever and the ingredients can be found even in the most neglected kitchen. They are an excellent solution for those impromptu visitors and they go magnificently with a good cup of coffee or tea.
