butter cookies

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • 3 ½ tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • 2 cups chopped white chocolate, melted
  • 1 cup freeze dried strawberries
  • cup crushed pistachios
  • cup thinly sliced strips candied citrus


  • Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  • In a stand mixer or with a hand mixer cream together butter and sugar.
  • Add milk, egg and vanilla and continue to mix. Scrape down sides of the bowl.
  • In another mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Pour flour mixture into the butter mixture and mix until evenly blended and a dough forms.
  • Divide dough into two discs, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Lightly flour a clean surface. Roll out 1 disc of dough to ⅛ inch thickness. Using a 3 inch round cutter punch out 20 cookies.
  • Transfer cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheet, 1 inch apart. (you will need multiple baking sheets or will need to do it in batches)
  • Bake cookies for 9 to 12 minutes or until cookies barely begin to brown around the edges.
  • Remove from heat and transfer onto a cooling rack.
  • Repeat steps 7 through 10.
  • Once cookies have cooled completely, carefully dip the tops of each cookie, a few at a time into the white chocolate, shaking off any excess, until you have a thin and even layer (you can also pour a small amount of the melted white chocolate onto the center of the cookie and spread an even layer over the surface using a small offset spatula or the back of a spoon).
  • While the chocolate is still wet, top each cookie with a sprinkle of each freeze dried strawberries pieces and crushed pistachios and a couple strips of candied citrus.
  • Repeat until all cookies have been dressed. Allow all cookies to set completely, 30 minutes to 1 hour. Serve.
