Black and White Butter Cookies

Posted in Cakes and Cookies

We had such a relaxing weekend. We actually didn’t do anything! We just ate, watched TV, had a movie night and basically just chilled. Of course, our lack of motivation to do something else was a direct result of the wintery weather outside. It was way too cold and way too wet to think about an outdoor activity or about any activity as a matter of fact; so what do you think I did? Yup! Baked; Come on…when the winds are blowing it’s time for cookies and milk isn’t it? And so, I did just that. Took me maybe 5 minutes to prepare the batter, gave it another 30 minutes in the fridge and about 20 minutes after I had freshly baked cookies. The best kind of cookies – Simple!
