Instructions to make Greek Butter Cookies Recipe:
Melt butter in microwave on high in large microwave safe dish for thirty seconds. It doesn’t need to be completely melted. Pour melted butter into large mixing bowl and beat on high speed with a hand mixer until creamy in texture. Add powdered sugar and beat on low until sugar is mixed in and then move to high speed.
Beat on high for about a minute. Add egg yolk and vanilla extract and beat until well blended. Set mixer to medium and beat in flour until well mixed.
Mixture will be crumbly and eventually start to collect together.Preheat oven to 350. Roll dough into a 1 to a 1 ½ inch ball and flatten slightly with your hand. Place on ungreased cookie sheet an inch apart. Bake 15-20 minutes at 350 until cookie has a slight golden color.
Let cool completely on cookie sheet. Using a flour sifter, place extra powdered sugar in it and shake over the cooled cookies. I serve them in baking cups – it makes it a lot easier.
