S-Shaped Butter Cookies
What You Need:
  • 7 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg white
  • Decorating sugar
  • ½ pound (2 sticks) plus 2 teaspoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a large bowl, cream the ½ pound of butter and the cup of sugar together by mashing and beating them against the sides of the bowl with a large spoon until light and fluffy. Then beat in the egg yolks one at a time, add the lemon peel and continue beating until smooth. Sift the flour into the mixture, ½ cup at a time, beating well after each addition.

    2. Pat and shape the dough into a long roll about 2 inches in diameter, wrap it in wax paper, and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes, or until firm.

    3. Preheat the oven to 400°F. With a pastry brush and the remaining 2 teaspoons of soft butter, lightly coat two large baking sheets. Set aside.

    4. Slice the dough into rounds about 1/3 inch thick. To shape each cookie, roll a slice of dough between your hands to form a rope about ½inch thick and 4 to 5 inches long. Gently press the rope flat on a pastry board to make a strip about ¾inch wide and ¼inch thick. Then with your fingers, form the strip into an S shape.

    5. Arrange the cookies an inch apart on the baking sheets and refrigerate for 10 minutes. In a large bowl, beat the egg white with a whisk or a rotary or electric beater until it is frothy and lightly thickened. Brush the top of each cookie lightly with the white and sprinkle it with a little of the decorating sugar.

    6. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes, or until the cookie is firm but only faintly colored. With a spatula, transfer the cookies to cake racks to cool.

    S-Geback can be stored for several weeks in tightly sealed jars or tins.
    To make about 7 dozen cookies
