MILK COOKIES


These are perfect cookies for any occasion, whether you're looking for something elegant to serve with your coffee/tea or fun activities with your kid.

It is not only so easy to make but the cookies retains its shape even after baking. Made using rubbing in method with just a few ingredients and you'll be amazed how this cookies turns out.

Topping is optional and  choice is yours. Keep a close eye on them in the oven as they are easily browned.

These cookies are fantastic, rich  buttery texture and so soft. They are sure to bring a smile to everyone's face. They are great for Easter too. Enjoy!
