Cut-Out Butter Cookies

Ingredients:

  • All purpose flour 3 cup
  • Confectioner's sugar 1 cup
  • Cold unsalted butter 1 cup
  • Vanilla extract 2 Tsp
  • Egg yolks of 4 eggs
  • Salt 1/2 Tsp

Mix together flour, sugar, cold butter and salt using hand or food processor. Lightly beat egg yolks and vanilla in a bowl and pour it into the flour mixture. Mix well until the dough forms. Divide dough into two, 1/2 inch disks. Wrap it well and chill it for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 deg F. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a 3/16 inch disk. Cut the dough into desired shapes using cookie cutter. Transfer it into a baking tray and bake it for 15 to 20 mins. Allow it to cool on the rack itself and kept in an air tight container.
