butter cookies recipe coverIt has been a long time since I last posted a recipe on All I Breathe.

Today you are going to learn a recipe for Butter Cookies. They are delicious quite shareable! 😉 Why not bake them to give to the ones you love in Valentine’s Day?


  • 125 g of butter at room temperature
  • 200 g of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 450 g of wheat flour


  1. Mix the butter and the sugar until you get an homogeneous cream.
  2. Add the eggs and the flour to the mix.
  3. Knead the dough until it does not stick to your hands anymore.
  4. Stretch the dough and cut it into any shapes you want. I made flowers, stars and hearts.
  5. Place the cookies in a tray lined with baking paper and put them in a preheated oven at 180 ºC.
  6. Take them out after they look golden brown.
  7. Share them with the ones you love and enjoy!

Note: If you want, you can add a soup spoon of chocolate, cinnamon, lemon zest or vanilla extract to your mix.
