1840 Farm Butter Cookies
Here at 1840 Farm, these cookies are a staple. They are incredibly flavorful and a great recipe to showcase just how delicious homemade vanilla extract can be. As they bake, their aroma perfumes the air to the point of making it nearly impossible to wait for them to cool before trying one fresh out of the oven.
While I don’t normally cut them out with a cookie cutter, you certainly could. For me, these cookies are all about the taste and my family is happy to eat them in hand cut squares which saves me time and keeps the dough from becoming tough from successive rollings. Because these cookies are basically a sable dough, they store incredibly well. They stay crispy for several days at room temperature and the vanilla flavor improves as they age.
