Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 1
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 6 tablespoons (3 oz/90g) butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons sugar , plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1/8 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 7 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  1. In a medium bowl mix together the soft butter, sugar and vanilla until light and pale
  2. Mix in the flour salt until combine. Your mix might look dry but press it together with your fingers and it will come together to form a dough
  3. Bake at 350F (180C) for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden in color
  4. Once cooled store the cookie in an airtight container for up to 3 days
  5. In the video I added the vanilla with the flour but I recommend adding it to the butter as it will incorporate into the mix better.
Recipe Notes

Make up the dough up to 4 days in advance.

This dough freezes really well.
