Butter Cookies with a Hint of Orange and Almond

Butter Cookies

Butter Cookies for the Holidays!!!

I actually posted this recipe last year. But I decided to repost it, because these cookies are so good. A lot of people already tested my recipe and every single person loved it.

The cookie dough is very easy to prepare. You can also place it in plastic wrap and freeze it. Then you can bake the cookies any time you want them.

Also, instead of icing, I used melted white chocolate. And to decorate the Christmas tree, I used mini chocolate chips as ornaments. With chocolate, these cookies are even more special 🎅.

Check out this recipe!!! I am sure you won’t regret it!!!
