These cookies were kind of an accident. A delicious, perfect accident, but an accident nonetheless. I started out making a slightly different recipe, but part of the way through, I realized that I didn’t have nearly enough flour, so I did some tweaking to what’d I’d already thrown together, and the improvisation turned into these cookies.
Oh these cookies! They’re not fancy or full of tons of flavor, but they’re so good. A little like a shortbread, but not quite. A little like a sugar cookie, but not as sweet. In short, they’re buttery, with just the perfect amount of vanilla.
