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 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 bowl. Beat at medium speed until well mixed. Continue beating, gradually adding flour, until well mixed.

  4. STEP 4

    Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in decorator sugars. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with tines of fork.

  5. STEP 5

    Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly 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.).
