Crispy and Crumbly (and Easy) Cookies For Father's Day

The sugar coating makes these cookies sparkly! It's great as a gift. You don't need to bring ingredients to room temperature, since you can just use the microwave. How about giving these as a Father's Day gift?

Ingredients: about 70 cookies

Flour (cake flour)
200 g
Butter ( unsalted if you have )
120 g
Granulated sugar
80 g
Granulated sugar for coating
as needed
Vanilla oil
a little


1. Sift the cake flour twice.
2. I always use this confectionery flour that doesn't require any sifting. If you use it, you don't need to sift!
3. Take the butter out of the refrigerator and cut up into pieces. Place in a heatproof dish, wrap with plastic wrap, and heat at 600 W for 40~50 seconds until almost melted.
4. Combine the butter and granulated sugar in a bowl and mix until white and fluffy.
5. It'll become white like this. It's okay if the crunchy texture of the sugar remains.
6. Mix the beaten egg well in 2~3 portions. Next, add vanilla oil to taste.
7. Add the cake flour to Step 6 and use cutting motions to mix together with a spatula.
8. Press the dough into the bowl while mixing. When it's no longer powdery, it's ready.
9. Divide the dough into 2~3 portions. Lay out a long strip of plastic wrap, then set a long, thin, 2 cm diameter cylinder of dough on top, and roll it up to wrap.
10. Tightly twist the ends of the plastic wrap closed into a cylinder shape, making it hard to crumble.
11. If you have a cardboard tube, slide it through the tube and chill in the tube so that it keeps its shape.
12. [Variation] You can divide the dough and add cocoa powder, chocolate chips, or raisins and such.
13. This time, I divided it into 3 portions to make a butter, a chocolate chip, and a raisin variety. The raisin cookie dough cylinder needs to be a bit fatter.
14. Let chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, but if you can let it chill for half a day, it will be even more delicious. If you don't have much time, just an hour is okay.
15. Preheat the oven to 180 °C.
16. Remove from the refrigerator, open the plastic wrap, and coat the dough with granulated sugar on top of the plastic wrap.
17. If it's hard to get the sugar to stick, you can brush some water on the dough's surface. Once coated with sugar, slice into 1 cm thick slices.
18. Line a baking sheet with kitchen parchment paper and arrange the cookies with space between. Once the oven has finished preheating, bake at 180°C for 10~15 minutes.
19. Please adjust the baking time according to your oven.
