dough chilling time 4 hours
Servings 2 dozen cookies


  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract can substitute vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • white or colored sugar for garnish / decoration


  • In a mixing bowl cream the butter with sugar for about 3 minutes.
  • Add in egg yolk and both extracts; beat until no sugar granules remain.
  • Beat in vanilla pudding mix until combined.
  • In a small bowl combine the flour with baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture and beat until combined (the mixture will be dry and slightly crumbly).
  • Remove the dough to a surface and gently knead the dough until it comes together (this will take only a few seconds).
  • Roll into one large log or two smaller logs.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until hard (about 4 or more hours).
  • Set oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Slice into slightly over 1/4-inch thickness (you may coat the slices in sugar if desired).
  • Place onto a greased baking sheet/s.
  • Bake for about 8 minutes or until light golden brown.
  • Allow to sit and harden slightly in the pan before removing (the cookies will harden upon sitting in the pan).
