Vanilla Cookies (Eggless)

Despite continuously baking cookies (Peanut CookiesPineapple Tarts, Chocolate Chilli Cookies and Suji Cookies), my enthusiasm for baking didn't fizzle out. Oh well! Suppose I had less to think about since I don't have to work. No! no! I didn't quit my job, though I admit the thought has been playing behind my mind. Let me see what is next after returning to work. Perhaps it's about time to put on my thinking cap and chart something else before I say enough is enough. With few more days before work, I baked  these pretty vanilla scented cookies. Not all that difficult but as you know, making cookies is about getting it right with the dough. Then of course it depends on how you like to pattern them out prior to baking, batch by batch. For these vanilla cookies, the sticky dough must be rested in the fridge to set first. Thereafter, rolled out bit by bit into small balls, pressed over with a fork dipped in flour and baked for the vanilla scented crumbly soft bite.  

90g butter
40g icing sugar (or for taste)
130g plain flour - sifted
1 tbsp corn flour - sifted
1 1/2 tbsp vanilla essence
3/4 tbsp milk
2 tbsp icing sugar (for dusting -  keep aside)
1 tbsp plain flour (to dip fork over - keep aside)
Beat butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
Add vanilla and milk, beat till combined. 
Add shifted plain flour and cornflour.
Beat on low speed or fold in until a sticky dough is formed. 
Refrigerate for about 1 hour or until firm/set to roll.
Roll into tiny balls and place on baking tray lined with baking paper.
Dip fork in flour and gently press over the balls.
(Note: you can flatten the balls as thin as you like)
Bake at 160C for about 20 minutes or till baked.
Dust icing sugar over while cookies are still warm.
