Bordeaux cookies are crispy and best enjoyed with a glass of cold milk. These cookies taste very similar to Pepperidge Farm Bordeaux Cookies.
Bordeaux is a port city on the Garonne River in southwest France. The historic part of the city is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as “an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble” of the 18th century. Bordeaux is also an upscale place- a city for luxury shopping, drinking, and eating. (Info from http://www.nomadicmatt.com/travel-guides/france-travel-tips/bordeaux/).

Yields - 20
1. Flour - 1 cup (I used whole wheat white flour, but you can use all-purpose flour)
2. Unsalted butter - 1 stick/8 tablespoon, softened
3. Brown sugar - 2/3 cup or white sugar - 1/2 cup
4. Baking powder - 1 teaspoon
5. Whole milk - 2 tablespoon
1. In a mixing bowl, cream together sugar and butter until smooth.
2. Add milk and baking powder and mix well.
3. Slowly add flour and combine together to form a dough.
4. Wrap the dough in a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
5. When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 deg F.
6. Meanwhile roll the dough into 1/4 inches thick and cut into desired shape using a cookie cutter.
7. Place the cookies in parchment lined baking tray with at least 3 inch distance between each cookie. The cookies are going to spread while baking.
8. Bake for 7-9 minutes until the top of the cookie turns golden brown. These cookies are soft just after baking but they harden once they cool down. Store in an airtight container.
