All Purpose Flour
Whole Wheat Flour
Preheat the oven to 200 C (400 F). Grease an oven proof plate with butter and keep it ready. Sieve together the flours and salt.
In a large bowl, beat together the butter and white sugar until it turns creamy, light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then add the vanilla essence. Give it a stir. Now start adding the flour mixture little by little into the sugar mixture.
Mix it till a soft dough forms. It might be a bit sticky. Cover this dough in a butter paper and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Cut out the chilled dough with cookie cutters onto the greased plate.Bake for 12 to 15 mins in the preheated oven or till done. Remove from plate to cool on wire racks. Once cooled down completely, store in an airtight container and enjoy with your hot cup of tea or coffee.
I used my coffee decoction filter’s lid as a cutter to get big sized cookies.
You can skip wheat flour and use All purpose flour or vice versa.
If the dough is still sticky after chilled use some more flour for dusting while shaping them.
