I have a cookie extravaganza post coming up, but I wanted to highlight this cookie.
It's light and crisp and fantastic.
I got this recipe from Sassy Radish, a cooking blog I've had been following lately.
I didn't take pictures of the dough process, so I'll just refer you to the above link. You have to let the dough rest overnight - I shaped mine into a long rectangle so I would have little square cookies. This was a great idea. :-)
After it's rested, brush it with an egg yolk and roll it in sugar until it's totally covered.
The more sugar, the better. Always.
Slice it up - this makes a lot of little cookies.
I got all 50 bazillion of them to fit on one cookie sheet, so that worked out well! Make sure you use parchment paper so they pop right off.
