  71. Hi
    Saw this posting on butter cookies. May I ask which piping tip you use?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hi Irene, I used tip 195, you can also use 172.
    Thank you for visiting ;D

    ReplyDelete
  73. Ann, I baked these and WOW! They are really really fantastic - very buttery and melt in the mouth all in 1 cookie!!! The only problem I had was the dough was way too soft that I could not make any design at all using the pipe....the dough was still very sticky to touch. What could be the problem? Maybe I need to chill the dough? I am very very sure I will bake these for CNY, Christmas and anytime!!! Thank you for sharing this fantastic recipe, Ann!

    1. Ai Li, I think you have over softened the butter that's the reason why you find the dough very sticky and not easy to handle.
      Please look at this link and get a better idea of soft butter use for baking cookies.
      http://www.cookinglight.com/cooking-101/techniques/cooking-questions-tips-00400000064986/page8.html
      Just remember you only need to let the butter in room temperature for about 20-30 mins because of the hot weather here.

  74. Thank you, Ann! Yes I did leave the butter out at the table for too long. Now I know and have learnt! Thanks for the link too.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Hi Ann, I am still unable to get the batter correct. It is so soft and sticky that I cannot even roll them into balls (I am not using the cookie press). I left the butter out for 30mins as you mentioned. Do you beat the butter and icing sugar with a mixer or just a spatula? Do I have to beat till the mixture is white? Please help and thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ai Li, Perhaps next time you can leave the butter at room temperature for 20 mins.
      Yes I used kenwood machine to mix the butter and icing sugar. emmm... why not forget this recipe? I've just tried Danish butter cookies and it is easier to handle and will not melt easily. Will post up another week.

  76. Ann, thanks for the offer to help. Are the Danish cookie also butter, fragrant and melt in the mouth? Thanks again!

    1. Is crispy type and better use good butter like SCS or golden churn. You've try it yourself and see whether you like it not.
