Liv Butter - Salted & Unsalted-001
Christmas is round the corner. Ever since I started baking, I've been thinking what Christmas presents I should bake/make for my family and friends. As there are many people I wanted to give, I didn't want them to be too complicated. Even though I don't really like cookies, but I think cut-out cookies are really nice, especially when it's frosted. I have to admit, I'm not so diligent, nor am I a perfectionist. Hahaha... (did you hear excuses coming?)

With so many recipes online and from books and magazine, I finally decided on making Honey Cinnamon (Cutout) Cookies.

1. Place butter, flour, powders and icing sugar into a large mixing bowl.

7. Roll 1 dough disc between 2 plastic sheets (or baking papers) until 5mm thick.
