Crunchy Flaky Butter Cookies

I'm always hunting for quick, and easy cookie recipes, especially ones that taste buttery.. I love the flavor of butter in my cookies, and cakes..
Today's recipe is for  Crunchy Flaky Butter Cookies... So Sweet, Crispy and Buttery with every bite.. These Cookies are great to have on hand, when unexpected guest arrive, or they serve excellent as Tea Cookies Unlike my Snicker cookies, Cadbury Cookies, or Classic Lemon Cookies, These cookies are delicate and Crispy like shortbread cookies.
You can even double the recipe to make more cookies to store, in your cookie jars..
I make these Sweet little Treats about once a week.. They taste great topped with almonds, peanuts, or any kind of nuts.. Or you can even cover them, or dip them with Chocolate like Nutella frosting.
You can just simply shape them, round or use your cookie cutters like I did.."My boy's get a kick out of them" I'm sure yours will too....
Here's my real quick simple recipe.
prep time 15 minutes
bake time 12-15 minutes
Oven 350
2 cups all purpose flour (maida)
1/2 cup Cornstarch (aka Cornflour) This gives the cookies a Smooth fine texture
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter- or you can also use cooking oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup of milk (you may not need all of the milk)
Pinch of salt
Heat your oven to 350 and grease a large cookie sheet, and place to aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine your flour, salt, corn flour and sugar. Once mixed well add in your butter, mix using your hands until the dough is nice and crumbly, Now add in your milk 1 tablespoon at a time, until you reach a moderately stiff dough. ( don't use all of the milk if you don't have to)
Place the dough on a flat surface. Using the palms of your hands, or a rolling pin press and roll  out the dough. If you would like to add nuts, pour them on top of the dough, and press them in gently with your palms. Now cut out your cookies with a desired cookie cutter.
Assemble on tray and Place in your oven for 12-15 minutes, until their nice and crispy light golden brown:)
Enjoy every bite with a big cup of Jo' or Your favorite Chai ( Tea)
