“This is an old family recipe that makes a very delicious cookie.”


1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

2 egg yolks

2 tablespoons water

3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 pinch salt

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 egg whites

2 tablespoons water


Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg yolks, 2 tablespoons water, flour, salt and vanilla. Chill the dough.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).

Fill the cookie press and shape the cookies on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush the top of each cookie with the egg whites mixed with 2 tablespoons of the water. Decorate as desired.

Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) until the cookies are golden brown on top, about 10 minutes.
