Copycat Jenny's Butter Cookies


These melt-in-the-mouth butter cookies have caused a storm ever since Jenny Bakery has opened it's very first outlet in Singapore. Many have braved the haze and hot weather to queue for the ultimate melt-in-the-mouth butter cookies at its Ang Mo Kio outlet when it first opened. It was so popular that the shop had to close for a few days as the cookies were sold out! However, a tin of cookies does not come cheap. I almost flipped when I heard a tin costs S$45!!

Many avid bakers have come up with recipes that tastes very close to Jenny's cookies and have shared generously their recipes and experiences. I've not tried Jenny Bakery's cookies myself and I'm reluctant to queue hours and pay high price for a tin of cookies, so I'm also drawn into this butter-cookie baking craze as well.

I must say the various recipes shared are up to individual's liking. I have settled for Cynthia Neo's recipe. The batter is easy to handle and the shape also holds well. 

Every piece of butter cookies placed in the mouth just melts in the mouth!! I also highly recommend using Golden Churn Butter (tin form) as it makes the cookies so buttery and fragrant! Be sure to sieve the flour in order to achieve light textured cookies.

I'll definitely be baking more of these!

  2. Hi
    Rice flour means 粘米粉? Bread flour is high protein flour?
    Thank you

  3. Hi, I baked some the other day and it was really yummy. May I know if I can reduce the sweetness? Will the taste be affected if the sweetness is reduced?

    1. Hi,
      Level of sweetness is very personal. You can certainly adjust the amount of sugar. Have fun experimenting! :)
