Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together butter, sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt until creamy. Using a rubber spatula, work hard-boiled egg yolks through a fine sieve and add to the mixer; mix until well incorporated. Add flour and vanilla and continue mixing until well combined, 2 to 3 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

  • Wrap dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough 1/2 inch thick. Transfer to a baking sheet and refrigerate until chilled. Cut dough into 3-by-1/4-inch-wide strips and transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. In a small bowl, mix together egg, yolk, and pinch of salt. Brush each strip with egg mixture, and garnish if desired. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Transfer baking sheet to oven and bake until lightly golden, about 12 minutes.
