Baking and Baking…

Off to my first trade show next week, NE Grows in Boston at the Convention Center. Stop by if you are in the neighborhood! As I think I have established by now, what I really know is food so I will be baking about a million little butter cookies to give out at the show. I have red, yellow and orange sugar to make them flame colored. I am not sure what this has to do with making and selling Fire Pits but my 18 year old foodie son has told me that I have to give out food, it will bring people into the booth. Here’s hoping he is right. I imagine he is but, really, no one loves food like a 6′ tall young man, they are always hungry! I wanted to give out s’mores but that was a little complicated, what with fire and all. How popular would my booth be if I could give out those yummy s’moretinis?!

Oh, right, trade show, work day, better move on.

If you feel like baking this weekend too, try these delicious butter cookies that I came across in Gourmet (sob, sigh) years ago.

Basic Butter Cookies

4 sticks (1 pound) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/3 cups sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 large egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

  1. In large bowl of a standing electric mixer beat together butter, sugar, and salt until light and fluffy. 
  2. Beat in yolks, 1 at a time, and vanilla and beat until smooth. 
  3. Beat in flour gradually, beating dough until just combined well.
