  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup ½ stick unsalted butter, softened
  • cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar until blended. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until smooth. Add the flour and mix until just combined. Shape the dough into a 6-inch-long log, about 2 inches in diameter, and place it on a sheet of wax paper. Roll the dough in the wax paper, twisting the edges to seal it. Freeze until firm, at least 3 hours, and up to 3 months.
  • To bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet to parchment paper. Remove the dough from the freezer and use a sharp knife or uncoated dental floss to slice the dough into ⅓-inch-thick rounds. Place on the prepared baking sheet, 1 inch apart, and bake until puffed and faintly golden, about 10 minutes.
