  • 1
    In large bowl, beat softened butter, granulated sugar, powdered sugar and salt with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until well mixed. On low speed, gradually beat in flour 2 to 3 minutes or until blended. On very lightly floured surface, shape dough into 3 (7-inch) logs. On cookie sheet with sides, roll logs in decorating decors, pressing into dough. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 325°F. Line large cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper. Working with 1 dough log at a time, unwrap; cut into 26 (1/4-inch) slices. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining dough logs.
  • 3
    Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are set. (Do not overbake.) Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 20 minutes. Store covered in airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

Expert Tips

  • Each time you slice a cookie, roll the dough log a quarter-turn to prevent flattening on one side.
  • For best results, bake cookies one sheet at a time on the center oven rack.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container in single layers between parchment or waxed paper at room temperature up to 1 week. Cookies can be frozen up to 2 months. To thaw, let stand uncovered at room temperature 1 to 2 hours.
  • To freeze unbaked cookie dough logs: Prepare and wrap dough logs as directed in recipe. Store in freezer up to 1 month. To slice dough logs, let dough stand at room temperature 15 minutes; slice and bake as directed.
  • Want to bake just a few cookies at a time? Freeze the dough and bake one cookie roll as needed.
