Soft, buttery, with vanilla bean crunchies. If you enjoy making delicious designs or  using cookie cutters, you may want to give this a try! 🙂

 

Recipe

The amount of cookies depends on how big/small you make your cookiesWith that said… I made 20.

3/4 of unsalted butter at room temperature

1 cup of granulated/white sugar

2 eggs at room temperature

1 tsp of pure vanilla extract

1/2 tsp of vanilla bean paste (optional)

2/3 cup of all purpose flour

1 tsp of baking powder

1/4-1/2 tsp of salt (depending on your preference)

  • Mix your baking powder and salt into your flour in a separate bowl.
  • With a hand mixer, stand mixer, or with a good ol’ whisk, whip your butter and sugar with a medium speed for 1 min.
  • Blend in your eggs, vanilla extract, and vanilla bean paste.
  • Finally, add your flour mixture for a final mix.

  • Take a whiff of the vanilla aroma…. mmm and cover your dough and chill in the fridge for a few hours-overnight (Or if you’re impatient like me, pop it in the freezer for a good 30min or so…).
  • Preheat your oven to 400F

  • Roll your dough and make the shapes you want…. i.e. letters, shapes, animals, symbols etc.
  • Bake for around 6-10 minutes (it depends on your oven and the texture you like).
  • And… Enjoy! 😀
