Step 1

In a mixing bowl cream the butter with sugar for about 3 minutes.

Step 2

Add in egg yolk and both extracts; beat until no sugar granules remain.

Step 3

Beat in vanilla pudding mix until combined.

Step 4

In a small bowl combine the flour with baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture and beat until combined (the mixture will be dry and slightly crumbly).

Step 5

Remove the dough to a surface and gently knead the dough until it comes together (this will take only a few seconds).

Step 6

Divide the dough into two even pieces then shape into logs.

Step 7

Wrap each log in plastic wrap and refrigerate until hard (about 4 or more hours).

Step 8

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Position oven rack to second-lowest position.

Step 9

Slice first log into slightly over 1/4-inch thickness. Coat each slice in sugar. Place onto a greased baking sheet/s.

Step 10

Bake for about 7-8 minutes or until light golden brown.

Step 11

Allow to sit and harden slightly in the pan before removing (the cookies will harden upon sitting in the pan).

Step 12

You can continue the same procedure with the second log or wrap tightly in foil and freeze for another time

Your right, they do melt in your mouth! One of our new favorites to add to the Christmas cookie list to make next year.

These are a great cookie and went right on to my cookie trays. I loved the fact that you make them, chill them then cut and bake. They took a lot less time then cutting them out. I did decorate them with a glaze and festive sprinkles.
