  • | 30 mins
  • | 10 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 stick sweet cream butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Rodelle Vanilla Paste, divided
  • 1 egg, divided
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and sprinkles for topping
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a small or standard sized baking sheet with parchment.
  2. In a medium bowl, using a standing mixer or hand mixer, whip the butter, sugar and 1 tablespoon of the Rodelle Vanilla Paste together until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add in the egg yolk, reserving the egg white for the glaze. Mix just until combined before adding the flour and mixing until a dough forms.
  3. Using a 2-inch scoop, shape 10 cookies onto the prepared baking sheet setting the cooking about 1 inch away from each other. Bake in the preheated oven for 14-16 minutes.
  4. For the icing, mix the lemon juice with the egg white until slightly frothy. Add 2 teaspoons of the egg white mixture to the powdered sugar and remaining Rodelle Vanilla Paste. Using a whisk, mix the icing together until uniform. If the frosting is too stiff add in water 1 teaspoon at a time. The mixture should be runny but not a liquid. Whip the frosting until light and fluffy and holds its form.
  5. While the cookies are still warm, frost each cookie with about 2 teaspoons of icing, adding the sprinkles and salt immediately. Frosting will harden in a few minutes. Serve warm or cool.
  6. Keeps for 3 days.

We would like to make you aware of some minor packaging changes over the next few months. While we have seen a surge in demand for Rodelle Vanilla this year, the recent pandemic has caused many disruptions in the packaging supply chain. At times, you may notice a different color cap or a different type of bottle when you buy our vanilla. Inside the bottle is the same Rodelle Vanilla with the taste and quality that you have come to trust over the years.
