Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Colored sugar

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. In a small bowl, combine flour and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture, mixing well (dough will be very stiff).
  2. On a well-floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. With a sharp knife or pastry wheel, cut dough into 2-1/2-in. squares, rectangles or diamonds. Place 1/2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle with colored sugar.
  3. Bake at 375° for 7-8 minutes or until lightly browned. (Watch carefully as cookies will brown quickly.) Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in airtight containers. Yield: 4 dozen.

"If I could give this recipe no stars I would. As the two other reviewers said, it's very bland. No amount of colored sugar could improve that."
