Best Butter Cookies



  • 10 oz unsalted butter (2 1/2 sticks)
  • 1 tablespoon Pam cooking spray optional
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 oz + 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 11 oz all-purpose flour
  • 4 oz corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons full cream milk/whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Cream butter with Pam cooking spray (if using), sugar, egg yolk, salt and vanilla extract until fluffy. Add in milk and mix well.
  2. Fold in the all-purpose flour and corn starch. Using your hands, mix until dough become soft and not stick on hands. 
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into rounds or whatever shapes you wish using cookie cutters. Assemble the scrap and roll in with the remaining dough. 
  4. Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets and place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. This will firm up the dough so the cookies will maintain their shape when baked.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, or until cookies are lightly brown. Cool on rack. You may keep the cookies in an airtight container.
