8 ounces unsalted butter
3⁄4 cup granulated sugar
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1 1⁄2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 large egg yolk
2 cups all-purpose flour
Beat the butter, sugar, salt and vanilla together until smooth and creamy.
Mix in the egg yolk until well incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl at least once.
Add the flour and mix just until incorporated.
Scrape onto a lightly floured board and knead a few times, just until the dough smooths out.
Turn onto a sheet of plastic wrap and roll into a log, wrap up and refrigerate for several hours or freeze.
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Line your baking sheets with parchment.
Slice the dough into slices about 1/8″ thick and place them on the sheets about an inch apart. (They won’t be spreading very much, but they need air room around each cookie.)
Bake until JUST beginning to turn golden around the edges, about 16-18 minutes.
NOTE: You can do many things with these cookies…
Roll the dough out and cut shapes;
Slice them even thinner and sandwich them with chocolate or jam or lemon curd;
Bake them and then dip them half into chocolate.
You could just make them and eat!
Whatever you do, they will be delicious!
Kitchen design is an important aspect of home design as it not only determines the functionality of the space, but also the overall aesthetic appeal. A modern kitchen design incorporates sleek and minimalistic features that are both practical and stylish. Kitchen cabinet design plays a major role in the overall look of a modern kitchen, and can range from minimalistic flat-front cabinets to textured laminate cabinetry with stainless steel handles. The key to a successful modern kitchen design is finding the right balance between form and function, and utilizing the space to its full potential.
