Cookie-Press Cookies image

Rich, buttery, and made with lots of vanilla, these cookies are simple to make. Use a cookie press-a hollow tube fitted with a decorative nozzle at one end and a plunger at the other-to press the cookies directly onto the baking sheet.

Yield Makes 2 to 3 dozen cookies

Number Of Ingredients 7

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
2 large egg yolks
3 3/4 cups sifted unbleached all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
Colored sanding sugars


  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, flour, salt, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.
  • Fill a cookie press with the dough, and turn out cookies 1 to 2 inches apart onto an unbuttered baking sheet. Sprinkle cookies with colored sanding sugars.
  • Bake until the cookies are lightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes. To ensure even baking, rotate sheet halfway through the baking process. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool.
