Mitch helped me make some delicious butter cookies from the Martha Stewart recipe here! The recipe calls for:
- 3 cups (spooned and leveled) all-purpose flour
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 cup (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut in pieces
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Decorating sugar and sprinkles, (optional)
Step One: Place flour, sugar, butter, and salt in the bowl of a food processor; process until mixture is the texture of coarse meal.
Step Two: In a small bowl, lightly beat egg yolks and vanilla; with motor running, add to food processor. Process just until a dough forms.
Step Three: Chill overnight!
Step Four: Divide dough in half. Flour your cutting surface and roll dough out to 3/16″ thick.
Step Five: Dip cutter in flour and cut out shapes of your choice!
Step Six: Decorate those cookies! My handsome fellow is such a fantastical artist, he really did an incredible job with these cookies.
Step Seven: Bake cookies on 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Step Eight: ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!! =)
