Vanilla Cookies (Eggless)

I wouldn't stop. Akin on roller blades, one after the other (Peanut CookiesPineapple Tarts, Chocolate Chilli Cookies and Suji Cookies), my enthusiasm for baking didn't possibly fizzle out. Oh well! Suppose I had less to think about because I was off from work. No! no! Not permanently off, just one week break for clearing my leave. Then again, you never know, neither I am absolutely sure. Taking a temporary retirement is indeed running through my mind. I sincerely and seriously need a longer break from my over stressed up job. Lets see what is gonna be the next course of action, meanwhile, with another few more free in hand days, I baked  these pretty vanilla scented cookies. Not all that difficult. Making wise and ingredients wise, but as you know or don't, making cookies is about getting it right with the dough. Then of course it depends on how you like to pattern it out, prior to baking, batch by batch. For these vanilla cookies, 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. Vanilla scented, crumbly soft, demurely and lusciously melting moment Vanilla Cookies (Eggless). Eggless? Yes, believe me.   

90g butter
40g icing sugar (or per 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 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. 
Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please. Nothing to loose, more to gain in fact.
