This recipe is my all time favourite recipe, only need four ingredients, but resulted great texture, dough is easy to handle and retained its shape after baked .
This time i replaced salted butter with unsalted butter, but i still prefer salted butter as its give better flavour.
Dough is not sticky at all ..
