Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. 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.

Footnotes

  • 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.
