Large egg yolk-1
Salt to taste(Pinch)
Powdered sugar or icing sugar-3/4 cup

  1. Beat butter and egg yolk at medium speed till the mixture is light and smooth(Takes 2-3 minutes)
  2. Now add  powdered sugar and again beat at medium speed for another 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly and gently with the help of spatula.
  4. Form a ball with the mixture and make it into soft dough.
  5. Flatten into disc shape and cover it with  a plastic wrap and let it sit in the refrigerator for an hour.
  6. After one hour take it out from refrigerator and roll it in between two plastic sheets to 1/4" thick .
  7. Cut into desired shapes with the help of cookie cutter.
