|14 oz. (400g)||Plugrá® Premium Butter, unsalted, softened|
|1 cup (200g)||granulated sugar|
|2 lg. (34g)||egg yolks|
|1 tsp.||vanilla extract|
|3½ cups (455g)||all-purpose flour|
|½ tsp. (3g)||sea salt|
Beat butter and sugar in an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Scrape down bowl and add egg yolks and vanilla. Continue beating on medium speed until thoroughly mixed.
Add half of the flour and all of the salt into the butter mixture, mixing on low speed until almost completely incorporated then add remaining flour and mix for 1 more minute.
Remove the dough from the electric mixer, knead for a few turns. Refrigerate the dough for 1 hour if it is too soft to roll.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Divide the dough into 3 equal pieces and work with one at a time, keeping the others wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated.
Lightly dust a work surface and rolling pin with flour. Roll the dough to about 3/8" thick and cut as desired following the instructions listed below.
Bake the cookies until they are firm to the touch and lightly golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes.
