Butter and Chocolate Cookies are on the menu in Book recipe, and we are going to teach you how to make this delicious recipe from scratch!

Cookie Box – This is literally my first time making, so many variety patterns of cookies. I made a post on my favorite butter cookie last couple of weeks. That was just one variation. In this video post, I am showing you how to prepare dough for both piping/squeezing and roll-out cookie dough. And also both butter and chocolate cookie variations. Super easy, I hope you are inspired to bake with me at this time. By the way, it’s Chinese New Year next week, and I am baking lots of cookies and cake to give away. Enjoy!

FAQ:

What’s the difference between egg white and egg yolk in cookies?
By adding egg whites, the cookie’s outcome will be more crispy and firm; whereas adding egg yolk the cookies will be more moist, hence softer.
