  • Step 1

    Prepare mise en place, sift together flour, salt and set aside. Line four baking sheets with either a silpat or parchment paper.

  • Step 2

    Cream together the butter, sugar, and seeds from vanilla bean with a standing mixer with the paddle attachment. Beat until just becoming creamy in texture. Whisk the egg and extract together, and add to butter mixture.
    (Don’t over mix otherwise you’ll incorporate too much air and the cookies will spread during baking, losing their shape.) Scrape down the sides of the bowl and paddle attachment. Sift the flour into the bowl of the standing mixer and mix on low until dough just begins to form and come together.

  • Step 3

    Knead on cool floured workspace, such as a marble board or counter top, bring the dough together, form a well in the center, and add the milk. Knead to amalgamate.
    Place the dough into a zip lock bag. Roll the dough into a disk, place in the refrigerator for 35 to 40 minutes.

  • Step 4

    Roll the out the dough about 6.35 mm/ 1/4-inch think. Dip the cookie cutters in some reserved flour, and cut out the shapes.
    Place on prepared cookie sheets and refrigerate for 30 more minutes.
    Preheat oven to 165 degrees C/ 325 degrees F, bake the cookies for about 5 to 6 minutes.

  • Step 5

    The cookies should look light golden color.
    Cool on cookies sheet for 5 minutes transfer to baking sheet , and allow to completely cool.

un.be.lievable! Hand *stitching* each one of those lines with icing would not have been on my list of guesses as to how that was done. I hope you charge $10 for each of those cookies just for the labor involved--not to mention your awesome talent!

GREAT instructional video makes me think I might even be able to do it myself (seriously unlikely, but you left out no detail!)

Amazing! Thankyousoverymuch!

and... you're not that done? How did you decorate these? They're so impossibly lovely I was hoping to know how that happened (not that I thought I could do so well. :-x)
