This is a recipe that tries to recreate the fantastic melt-in-the-mouth butter cookies from Jenny Bakery.

If you’ve eaten Jenny Bakery cookies, you’d notice the beautiful design of the flower cookie and that the colour of the cookie is barely brown. How to make a butter cookie that stays in shape?

I froze the dough after piping. Nope, that didn’t work. I conclude there must be either some special equipment or some special leavening agent in the dough.
