{Weekend Bake}

Rain, rain and rain! This is the meteo for the weekend! I need spring, sun, bright light, warm weather… No more grey, rain and cold! That’s why I’ve decided to decorate my butterfly cookies with pink and white, because they remind that tomorrow will be exactly a months to Spring!

I’ve made this Butter cookies for breakfast tomorrow! Easy and quick to make…
You need:

1 cup of Butter;

3/4 cup of sugar;

1 egg;
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla (you can change the flavour and use whatever you live, almond, coconut…) or grated lemon zest;

2-1/2 cups of flour;

1 pinch of salt.

Cream the butter with sugar, add the lemon zest and the egg and at the end add the flour. Let chill in fridge for at least 45 minutes.

Using a cookie cutter cut the dough and cook it for 10 minutes at 180°. Once the cookies are cool you can decorated with sugar frosting or chocolate!

Aren’t they super cute? and, believe me, also so Yummy…

Have a great weekend my darling friends ! See you on Monday!

P.s.: Happy Birthday to my dearest friends Federica and Chicca… let’s celebrate!
