When I was younger, my mom would take me to Vons, or the local town bakery, and we would buy bundles of delicious sprinkled butter cookies. They were small, crumbly, and buttery. And they were my absolute favorite.
They looked something like this:
So I decided to try and re-create these cookies.
The search was on!
I called Vons – they said that they do not bake the cookies in their store.
I called our local bakery – they wouldn’t tell me the recipe! Grrr.
I went online, and found millions upon millions of butter cookie recipes. DANG.
So I got out my notebook and started experimenting.
Batch 1, Dipped in Mr. Petes Chocolate Fudge Sauce
Batches 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6
Which will wiN??
So…none of them hit jackpot. But I did make some pretty darn good butter cookies.
If you have the butter cookie recipe I am looking for, or any good recipe for that matter, pass it along!
