"Jenny-like" Butter Cookies

Everyone went crazy when Jenny Butter Cookies set foot on Singapore.  My family fell in love with the cookies when we first received a tin that my brother bought it from Hong Kong.  The cookies are really nice and also addictive.  I must admit that I actually got a little crazy of it too *grin*.  But I’m not so crazy enough to queue for hours just to get it. 

I googled and hoping to find a recipe that is closed to it.  It was a surprise to see so many avid bakers have already come out recipes that is quite similar to Jenny Butter Cookies.
After taking reference from the various sources, I have finally settled with this recipe.  My siblings and 2 boys commented that it is nice and just like Jenny Butter Cookies, it has strong butter fragrant and melts-in-the-mouth texture.   Some of my friends commented the same too.  But majority commented it is too buttery for them. 
This is another cookie that I baked for this CNY.  Overall I’m happy with the outcome as every piece of the cookies that put into the mouth just literally melt into the mouth.   


200g         Butter 
50g            Icing sugar
50g            Rice flour
90g            Plain flour
60g            Bread flour

*Use Golden Churn Butter (Tin type) to achieve the strong buttery taste and fragrant

*3 type of flours are used to achieve the melts-in the mouth texture and yet able to hold the shape well.

1)Cream butter and icing sugar until creamy.
2)Sieve the flours into the creamed butter and icing sugar.
3)With light and quick motion, fold in the flour using a spatula. Do not overmix.
4)Scoop the cookie batter into piping bag with Wilton open star tip attached to it.
5)Pipe cookie batter onto lined baking tray.
6)Bake in preheated oven at 160C for 20 minutes.

7)When done, remove from oven and let cool on wire rack completely before storing in an air tight container.
