Butter cookies

I came across cookie stemps from Nicolas Vahé when I went shopping the other day and they came with a basic recipe for butter cookies.
100g softened butter
120 g sugar
1 egg
180 g flour
As flavour aditives you can use grated chocolate, ground nuts, lemon zest, vanilla etc.
Read below for what kind of flavourings i used.
Cream butter and sugar white, add the egg and the flavoring you want, continue mixing and lastly sift in the flour, stop when it start sto lump up.
I made three different batches,
in one of them I added zest of one lemon and 1 tsp of lemon juice,
the second one I added 50 g of ground almonds and
the last one 50 g of ground pistachio nuts.

Roll the dough into a thick sausage, the same thicknes as the cookie stamps diameter.

Wrap it in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and put it in the fridge for about 2 hours.

 

Cut sausages in to 4 mm thick slices.
stamp and place them on a baking tray with baking paper.

Bake in the middle of the oven on 180 Celsius for 10-12 minutes

There were three different staps in the package and I stamped each flvour with one of them.
