Butter, sugar, flour, the perfect trifecta. These simple butter cookies are my first try at Viennese Sables. When I soften butter for cookies I usually get it too warm but in this recipe it worked. Very warm softened butter is creamed with confectioners’ sugar which was easy to do by hand with a spatula. Additional ingredients include salt, egg white, vanilla and flour. My piping skills are not as polished as a professional but I am proud of how good I did do for my first time. Dorie states “These taste exactly like those Danish butter cookies, the ones that come in the blue tin.” And she is right they do but oh so much better. I think these cookies look fancy, are easy to make and taste great. A winner in my book.
