DIRECTIONS

  • In a stand mixer, combine the butter, sugar, and salt. Beat on medium speed until smooth.
  • Add the egg yolks and vanilla and beat on low speed until blended.
  • Add the flour and mix until incorporated and a smooth dough forms.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a log 7 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap the logs in plastic and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven, and preheat to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut each unwrapped log crosswise into slices 1/4 inch thick. Place the cookies 1 inch apart on the baking sheets.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes until the edges and bottoms are golden. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
