Eggless Butter Cookies Recipe | Cookies without baking soda/baking powder

Eggless Butter Cookies Recipe are the simplest cookies with awesome buttery taste. Eggless sugar cookies call for just 3 ingredients- butter (obviously) all purpose flour and sugar. No baking soda or baking powder is required.

These are very basic butter biscuit recipes. You can customize them easily with a handful of tutti frutti, chocolate chips, dry fruits etc. I did not use any flavouring because I love the buttery taste. You can use vanilla or any other extract as per your choice.

Nothing says home as the smell of baking cookies recipe. And I realized this with these soft butter cookies. This was the first thing I ever baked because they are drastically simple. And frankly, I don’t know what the end result was. Not because I did not get to taste them. Because they couldn’t reach their end. They were all over in the process itself. I mean the cookies got over while they were still warm. But I guess that’s the best that could have happened to them.
