It’s late August, do you know what that means? In our house it means someone’s birthday is just about 2 months away and I start brainstorming her birthday party! And this year she’s turning —- 2, 2! 2 sounds so grown up. I can’t believe she is so big…sigh. Back to the party though – our Z isn’t really into sweets so I was thinking of a less-sweet cookie for her to serve alongside a birthday cake.
I don’t know about you, but I love a slightly sweet, slightly salty, buttery cookie and, as suspected, so does my Z. I saw this recipe for Vanilla-Bean Sable Cookies on Pinterest recently and knew we had to try them out. I made a batch last week for a trial run and they came out great so I wanted to share with you.
I followed the recipe to a T including making the vanilla sugar…
Mixing the butter with sugars and egg yolk…
And rolling the dough into logs and fridge-ing overnight.
Then, I did my own décor and rolled the dough in colorful non-pareils. Coat the chilled dough in egg wash and roll it in your choice of sprinkle or sanding sugar (as the original recipe calls for).
Aren’t these cute? And perfect for a second birthday party!
