Christmas Cookie

A small batch of thin and crispy butter cookies sprinkled with Christmas colour pearl sugars for an added festive look and feel 🎄🎅
My family was addicted to the home-baked butter cookies that I have to baked a second batch fast. The second batch of cookies were sprinkled with an additional white pearl sugar 😍🎄🤶

Simple ingredients, simple steps, but gave a very crispy and buttery taste cookies 😋
