1 cup of softened unsalted butter + 1 ounce melted
½ cup of sifted powdered sugar
2 cups of sifted flour
1 tablespoon of sugar in the raw
Cream together the softened butter and powdered sugar in a standing mixer with the paddle attachment on high speed until light and fluffy.
Next, add in the flour and mix on low speed until combined.
Remove the dough and form a ball, and then roll it out on a clean flour dusted surface until it is about ¼” inch thick and then using cookie cutter rounds cut out 24 cookies. Note that you may need to roll out the access dough to get to 24 cookies.
Place the cookies on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper and brush with melted butter and sprinkle on sugar in the raw.
Bake in the oven at 350° for 15 minutes or until browned. Cool before serving.
