Viennese Butter Cookies Recipe


  • 1 1/2 Sticks of Salted Butter (3/4 Cups), room temperature
  • 3 Tablespoons of Confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 1 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour, sifted
  • 1 Pastry bag with a Medium sized star tip


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a large bowl, mix butter and confectioners' sugar until very soft. Mix for about 5 minutes. You want to make sure sugar is spread and dissolved through out.
  • Then add in your flour a little at a time.
  • Add your cookie do into your pastry bag. Now you can be creative.
  • You can make 3 inch long fingers, or you can swirl them in the same spot to create little cookie swirls.
  • Add Sixlets on top before baking.
  • Bake for approximately 10 - 15 minutes, or until lightly golden in color. Then transfer to cooling wrack. Have fun and add a few decorations to it, or even better...melt down some chocolate and dip them in it!
  • Notes

    Your dough is going to be VERY soft. If your dough turns out very thick or stiff, you've add too much flour or measured the butter wrong. Which means that you will have to start again.
