Happiness is Homemade Mini Butter Cookies: Here’s a Recipe You Can’t Resist

The act of baking has become a way for me to express my love for the arts. I create what I want to create, however simple or complex my creation may be. Recognizing my love for this art, my family and friends encouraged me to start my own bakery “Jay’s Creations” – a customized bakery at my home in 2019. With the help of my family’s support, I have been able to spare more time to use my creativity and unique ideas in baking.

Working on different baking projects provides me with joy and creative freedom to make whatever I envision. I have published a couple of dessert recipes in magazines published in the U.S. Here is a quick and easy recipe “Mini Butter Cookies” that’s very easy to make and kid-friendly as well. I hope you can try making these mini butter cookies and spread the joy of baking with your family!
