  • Combine flour and next 3 ingredients (through salt), stirring well with a whisk.
  • Place butter and brown sugar in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy (about 1 minute).
  • Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed. (Mixture will appear crumbly.)

  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Unwrap dough; cut each log into 16 slices using a serrated knife.
  • Place dough circles 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheets.
  • Sprinkle tops evenly with turbinado sugar, gently pressing into dough.
  • Bake for 18 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Remove from baking sheets; cool on a wire rack.
