French Butter Cookies

A simple yet tasty butter cookie. Perfect for an afternoon snack or accompanying a cup of tea.

  • 1 cup (250ml butter), room temperature
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  1. In a bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar on high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla, mixing thoroughly.
  3. Gradually add the flour and salt. Mix on low speed until just combined.
  4. On three separate sheets of plastic wrap, roll the dough into three logs 3-4-cm (1.5 inches) thick. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least one hour to overnight.
  5. When ready to bake, place a rack into the center of the oven and preheat to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F).
  6. Prepare a cookie sheet by lining it with wax paper.
  7. Remove one log from the fridge and roll it in the granulated sugar, making sure to coat it completely.
  8. With a sharp knife, cut slices 0.6cm  (1/4-inch) thick.
  9. Place the slices on the prepared cookie sheet 2.5 cm (1-inch) apart.
  10. Optional – with a toothpick, make 4 decorative holes in each cookie, so that it looks like an old-fashioned button. SEE NOTE
  11. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
  12. Transfer cookies to a wire rack so that they can cool completely.
Recipe Notes

I poked each cookie with a toothpick which was time consuming. When they were removed from the oven, I couldn’t really tell that most of them had holes, so you may want to use something larger.
