The test came when I need to prepare party packs for Zach's birthday celebration in school. Being a mummy, I dislike giving junk food as party goodies, so what is better than homemade goodness? A good friend bought me a cookie press that I have been keeping for months. Finally I can open them up and use it. Whoop whoop..
It was jiffy using the cookie press and the pattern turned out great!
As usual I Google-d on which recipe I want to use. The one that I referred to is simple and pretty. It is slightly different because she piped icing on top of the cookies which made them prettier.

With lazy me, I opted out of piping icing - I do not know how to pack them without smudging the icing. Haha..excuses excuses.
Using her recipe (see blog URL above), I used Isigny butter that I bulk purchased from a lady. Cookies turned out fragrant with good buttery taste! Exactly how I love my butter cookies. It made me happier to know that the decision to bake butter cookies is the right one because both my boys loves them very much that Zach kept asking for more - that's rare.
