Baking cookies is a fun activity for both young and old. There are many recipes for cookies that are really easy and some that are far more complicated than they need to be. The reason is various recipes call for specific ingredients or special preparations to be completed. Here’s a simple treat based on an easy-to-follow recipe so if you want to bake a basic treat, then freezer butter cookies are a great choice.

If you are familiar with store bought butter cookies, then freezer butter cookies will be somewhat similar. Both types of cookies will have a similar flavor, but are prepared in different ways. The reason the freezer is used is to firm up the dough to cut individual cookies. However, this is done once the dough is almost ready to cook.

All the ingredients that are needed to make freezer butter cookies can be found in your kitchen. If you find you need one or more ingredients, then all you need to do is take a trip to your local grocery store. You will not need to use an electric mixer to make freezer butter cookies. A simple mixing bowl is all you’ll need.

The shape of your freezer butter cookies depends on your personal preference. Of course, a square shaped cookie can easily be made with only a knife once your dough is firm enough to cut. However, you can use any method you prefer to get the shape you want for your cookies. All you need to do is make sure the cookie dough is firm enough to cut into individual pieces.

Then it’s time for the oven for your freezer butter cookies. This means you will need a cookie sheet and tin foil when you are ready to bake the cookies. The baking time for the cookies will vary based on the type of oven and other factors, but should take only between 10 and 14 minutes.
