  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/3 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup white sugar, or as needed


  • In a bowl, mash the butter and flour together until smooth and creamy. Beat in the cream, 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time, until thoroughly combined.
  • Scrape the dough onto a large sheet of plastic wrap, wrap tightly, and chill at least 1 hour to overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Roll the dough out 1/4 inch thick on a floured work surface, and cut into 2-inch circles with a cutter. Place sugar into a shallow bowl, and dip each cookie into the sugar on both sides. Place the cookies onto the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake cookies in the preheated oven until the edges turn light golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow cooling for about 5 minutes on sheets before removing to cool completely on racks.
