Instructions Checklist
  • Combine the butter, flour and confectioners' sugar together. At first it will have a pie crust consistency. Roll into one large log and wrap in wax paper or plastic wrap. Chill for at least one hour.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Slice chilled log into 1/4 inch thick slices. Place cookies on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until edges just begin to turn golden, about 10 minutes. Watch carefully so they don't burn.

Editor's Note:

Add a pinch of salt if you're using unsalted butter. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, if desired. You can also roll the log in chopped toasted nuts, colored sugar, or sprinkles for a special touch.
