BUTTER COOKIES


These were supposed to be spritz cookies except the cookie press I bought at one granddaughter’s school fundraiser last year turned out to be a dud, what can I do - roll it out and pretend its already Valentines. A little bit of wishful thinking on my part in this cold front we are having with the record setting temperatures, can you believe it, minus 22 Celsius and with wind-chill it feels more like minus 35! But the cookies were delicious, and said granddaughter took them all home. Lunch treats are secure for a couple of weeks now.


brrr
1 cup butter, soft
1-1/4 cups icing sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 egg yolks
1-1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

• Preheat the oven to 400F.
• In a medium bowl, on high speed, cream the butter and the sugar.
• Add the salt.
• Stir in the egg yolks and vanilla extract.
• Reduce speed and start adding the flour.
• Keep beating until smooth dough forms.
• Line a cookie sheet with parchment and roll out the dough on top.
• Cut desired shapes with a cookie cutter
• Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven.
• Remove and let cookies cool before decorating.
• Melt 1/3 cup pure chocolate chips and 1 Tbsp butter in the microwave.
• Stir and spoon into a small zyplock bag.
• As you close the bag try to press out the air.
• Twisting the bag, force the chocolate to one corner, and with scissors snip a small bit off the corner.
• Squeeze out icing to make polka dots and squiggles
• Yield 30 cookies

  2. Thank you Elisabeth! After I made them I thought this dough would be perfect for sculpted cookies, I think I will let my granddaughter have a go at it on our next pyjama day.
