This recipe calls for just three ingredients and the most basic ones at that: flour, butter, and sugar. They're beaten with an electric mixer to create smooth dough that's then pinched off and shaped into little balls by rolling it between the palms of your hands and flattened slightly with the tines of a fork before baking. Sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar while they are still warm from the oven.
- Preheat oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F).
- Mix butter at room temperature with flour and sugar until the dough forms a ball that no longer sticks to sides of the bowl.
- Scoop portions of dough and roll into tiny balls, place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
