Additional Information

Step 1

In small bowl, combine flour and salt; set aside. In large bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add egg yolk and vanilla; mix well.

Step 2

Slowly add flour mixture, beating on low speed until incorporated. Increase speed to medium and beat 2 minutes. Form dough into 3 disks, about 1 in. thick; wrap in plastic wrap. Chill 1 hour or until firm enough to roll.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Step 4

On floured surface, roll out dough 1/4 in. thick (keep remaining dough in refrigerator until ready to roll). Cut with star cutter; place on prepared cookie sheets. Place cookies in freezer for 15 minutes before baking. Form scraps into a disk, chill at least 30 minutes and reroll.

Step 5

In small bowl, whisk together egg and cream. Remove cookies from freezer and brush lightly with egg mixture. Sprinkle with Sparkling Sugar. Bake 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove to cooling grid and cool completely.
