Spelt Butter Cookies

Spelt Butter Cookies

Are you wondering how to make a simple butter cookie? Then this recipe butter cookie with spelt is super quick and easy to make. Most ingredients you will have in your cupboard, flour, egg, butter, vanilla extract, baking powder and sprinkles.
Have fun dipping this into sprinkles, choc chips, poppy seeds or sesame seeds. I love making this butter cookie with my favourite Craggs & Co white spelt flour but if you don't have spelt flour swap this out for regular flour. This recipe was inspired by landolakes.com.
