Serving size 12



¾ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature ¾ cup granulated sugar2 egg yolks½ tsp vanilla extract¼ tsp salt2 cup all-purpose flour


  1. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter and granulated sugar until fluffy. Add egg yolks, vanilla, and salt. Beat to combine. Gradually add the flour, mixing until just incorporated. Divide the dough in half and shape into 1 inch-diameter logs. Wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Slice the dough logs into ¼-inch-thick pieces and place 1 inch apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until lightly golden, around 18 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets, then transfer to cooling racks.



1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and zest until it forms a thick icing. Spread the icing onto half of cookies, and sandwich with other half of cookies.
