French Sable


1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup corn starch
1/4 teaspoon salt


Cream the butter and sugar. Add egg yolk and vanilla and beat thoroughly.
Combine flour, corn flour and salt. Add to the butter mixture and blend until the dough is smooth.
On a very lightly floured surface, shape the dough into cylinders about 1 to 2 inches in diameter.
Wrap in waxed paper or plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Roll the dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper.
Cut the dough using your favourite cutters. Place 1-inch apart on a parchment covered baking sheet.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cookies are slightly coloured around the edges.
