Description:

These simple Butter Cookies are a homemade version of the classic that comes in the blue tin, only BETTER!


Scale

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup coarse sugar or sprinkles for rolling

Instructions

  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix the butter and granulated sugar together for 2 minutes. Add in the egg yolk, vanilla, salt, and baking powder, and mix until combined and smooth, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl as necessary. 
  2. Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour until just incorporated. Divide the dough in half and roll each half into a 1 1/2- inch thick log. Sprinkle the coarse sugar onto a clean counter and roll each log into the sugar, coating evenly. 
  3. Wrap each log in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.
  4. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 325°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  5. Remove the cookie dough from the refrigerator, unwrap, and slice each log into 1/4- inch rounds. Place cookies onto the prepared baking sheet 1- inch apart. Bake for 15 – 18 minutes, until the edges are golden brown. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 

Notes:

Store airtight at room temperature for up to 7 days.
