A standard Swedish butter cookie recipe.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 3/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Cream the butter and 2 tablespoons of sugar until light and fluffy, then stir in the egg yolk. Add the flour and mix until well blended.
Combine the 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon. Roll the dough into balls the size of small olives and roll in the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Place cookies on a cookie sheet and press criss-cross with a fork until cookies are 1/3 inch thick.
Bake for 10 minutes, or until light brown.
