Ingredients

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

3/4 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 cups all-purpose flour

 

Decorator sugars

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt 1 cup butter over medium-high heat in heavy 2-quart saucepan. Continue cooking, watching closely, 3-5 minutes or until butter foams and just turns a delicate golden color. Immediately remove from heat. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine browned butter, sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  4. STEP 4

    Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in decorator sugars, as desired. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with tines of fork. Bake 12-15 minutes or until light golden brown. Let stand 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

Tip #1

For creative designs try a variety of kitchen utensils to flatten cookies (meat fork, meat mallet, cookie stamps, pastry blender, bottom of patterned glass, etc.).

My 7yo helped me make these and he had a blast. And for them to taste so good afterwards just made his day. :)
