Description

These butter cookies are fashionably shaped into twists and covered in powdered sugar for an elegant cookie that can accompany afternoon tea or coffee. Featuring subtle vanilla flavor, these butter cookies are made with egg whites, flour, sugar, and butter. You want your cookie dough to be soft, but not sticky. Bake time on these cookies is 13 minutes. Wait until the cookies are completely cool before sprinkling with powdered sugar.
