Ingredients

  • 2 cups (240 g) All Purpose Einkorn Flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons (140 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150 g) sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar for 2 minutes in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on medium-low speed, stopping a few times to scrape down the sides.
  3. Add the egg, and vanilla and mix for 1 minute until thoroughly combined.
  4. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until just incorporated, scraping down the sides. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Working with half of the dough at a time, very lightly dust a piece of parchment paper and the rolling pin with flour. Roll the dough to ¼ inch thick. Cut out the cookies and place on the baking sheet 1 inch apart. Gather the scraps into a ball, chill for at least 10 minutes, then roll out again.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes until lightly golden around the edges. Cool on the sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack before decorating.
