Fredericksburg Farms

3 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups butter softened
2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together the butter, sugar, and vanilla until just combined.
  3. Add the flour, water, and salt and mix on low speed until the dough comes together in a mass.
  4. Dump the dough out onto your work surface and shape into a flat disk. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

  7. Bake the cookies for 20 - 25 minutes, until the edges begin to brown.
