Traditionally, Italian Butter Cookies are dipped in chocolate and sprinkles or nuts on one end, or have jam nestled between two cookies.
You can also enjoy these alone and they’re amazingly good.
1 cup or 2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened – 3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg plus 1 yolk – 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt – 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)
1/2 cup (160 grams) jam of your choice (apricot goes well).
1 cup sprinkles, chopped nuts
10-to-12-ounce semisweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
Combine the butter and sugar and blend for about 5 minutes.
Yes, that long! Once the butter and sugar mixture is pale in color, add the eggs, vanilla, and salt, and beat to combine. Add the flour, and mix just until the flour disappears. Fit a piping bag with a medium star tip.
