butter cookies

  • 1 cup butter 2 sticks
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • tbsp whole milk
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 egg white beaten until frothy
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • variety of edible flowers of choice
  • turbinado sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  • In a stand mixer or with a hand mixer cream together butter and sugar.
  • Add milk, egg and vanilla and continue to mix. Scrape down sides of the bowl.
  • In another mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Pour flour mixture into the butter mixture and mix until evenly blended and a dough forms.
  • Divide dough into two discs, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Lightly flour a clean surface. Roll out 1 disc of dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Using a 3 inch round cutter punch out 20 cookies.
  • Transfer cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheet, 1 inch apart. (you will need multiple baking sheets or will need to do it in batches)
  • Par-bake cookies for 6 to 7 minutes so they are partially baked.
  • In a small mixing bowl beat together frothy egg whites and vanilla extract.
  • Carefully dip each flower into the egg white mixture, shaking off any excess, and gently press dipped flowers onto the surface of each par-baked cookie (if flower edges curl up, gently press them back down with your fingers).
  • Using a pastry brush, brush the entire surface of the floral pressed cookies with a little more of the egg white mixture and sprinkle with a small amount of turbinado sugar.
  • Return the cookies to the oven and finish baking off, about 5 to 6 minutes or until the cookies bake through completely and barely begin to brown around the edges.
  • Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely.
  • Repeat steps 7 to 14 with the other disc of cookie dough. Serve.
