makes 8 dozen

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp kosher salt

Cream the butter & the sugar on Medium speed with a stand mixer until light & airy, about 4 minutes. Stop the mixer occasionally & scrape down the sides of the bowl using a rubber spatula. Add the egg & the vanilla bean paste. Mix the dough just until blended. Whisk together the flour, the baking powder & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture. Blend on Low speed just until the dough comes together. Divide the dough into thirds. Roll each piece into a 7 1/4 x1-inch log; wrap each log with plastic. Chill 2 hours or up to 2 days.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice the dough using a paring knife into 1/4-inch pieces. Place 1-inch apart on parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. Bake, in batches, on the center oven rack 12 to 14 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container up to 5 days.

How To Soften Butter

Remove butter from the refrigerator at least 20 minutes before using when baking is in order. If time is short, place the sticks in the microwave & cook on High with small bursts of power in 4 second intervals. Check the consistency after each burst to be certain it doesn’t get too soft.

Softened butter is called for often in recipe applications. The key is to begin the mixing process whether for cookies or other baked items with butter that is the proper consistency. It shouldn’t be too firm nor too soft. You should be able to create a rudimentary butter curl with a spoon or press your index finger into the surface. If it holds shape, it is indeed ready to use.
