"Butter Cookies"

The smell of baking cookies, the smile on your face.
Your little hands reaching, “eat dough” they say.

You reach for the spoon, you take a bite,
your face is covered in chocolate and delight.

The timer rings, you jump and run,
little hands clapping, for such a sweet treat.

The time has come, your hand reaches out,
oh, the delight of sweet cookies and milk.

I simply adore cookies and biscuits.They are a saviour for your sudden hunger pangs and sugar cravings.
A batch of fresh homemade cookies with a cup of tea or milk are a delight. You can make a big batch of these cookies and store them in an airtight container for weeks ( if any left to store for that long).
This recipe is of simple Butter Cookies that can be made easily at home.
