This was actually a recipe I posted in april, but I didn't have a picture of them at the time. Here's the picture, and I think they should really be called shortbread snicker doodles. Soooooo yummy.
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees
1 1/2 C flour
1/2 C confectioner's sugar
1 TBL vanilla sugar1/4 C cornstarch
1/2 tsp salt (the recipe called for 1/4 tsp, but it was looking very sweet)
1 vanilla bean
1 C cold, cubed butter
Cinnamon-Sugar for rolling the cookies in.
Add all dry ingredients into electric mixing bowl and sift. Then split the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape the seeds into the flour mixture. Next, add the cubed butter. Mis on medium-low speed until dough just comes together. Roll dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Cook for about 10-12 minutes (I eyed it). Now in the recipe I used, it said that once you remove the cookies from the oven let them cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Then, in a medium bowl roll them in vanilla sugar and then place them back on the rack to cool completely. The vanilla sugar tasted great, but it was a little too sweet for me (plus vanilla sugar isn't always just hanging around for people like me), so I did a cinnamon sugar mixture. More sugar than cinnamon because the cinnamon can stick a little too much, but they came out great!
