How to make it

  • Cream butter and sugar on medium speed with mixer. Add egg yolks and beat until fluffy. Blend in vanilla and liquor. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt, add to sugar mixture. DO NOT OVER BEAT! Blending with hands is best. Split dough in two portions and pat down into a 1 inch disc shape. Wrap in plastic and refridgerate at least one hour. Roll out to 1/4 inch thick and cut with cookie cutters. Bake in a 350 degree oven until VERY light brown on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Decorate with royal icing (posted) or frosting.

    In the directions it mentions to add salt. Salt is omitted in the ingredients....so how much salt should there be?

    The name stands for itself in this recipe. I made these, and they really were the best ever! These cookies stayed soft for days, and had a very professional taste and texture. One of the best cookie recipes I've tried!

    There is only one thing my wife won't let me cook/bake...sugar cookies. Every time I try, they turn out, well the kids say with sarcasm, "mmm we love dad's cookies". I am going to try yours right now. I'll let the kids decide if they are as perfect as the recipie looks.
