|2 sticks (250 g) softened butter||2 tsp vanilla extract|
|3/4 cup (140 g) superfine sugar||2 1/2 cups (300 g) all-purpose flour|
|1 egg yolk||1/4 tsp salt|
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Put the butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract in a large bowl and beat together until well mixed.
Sift in the flour and add the salt. Mix again to make a dough.
Now it’s time to get sticky! Press the dough together firmly with your hands to make a ball.
Roll the dough between a folded piece of baking parchment. until about 1/4 in (5 mm) thick.
Cut out shapes using cookie cutters. Gather up the trimmings into a ball, then roll out again and make more shapes.
Lift cookies with a palette knife and arrange the shapes slightly apart on nonstick cookie sheets.
Bake for about 14 minutes.
