I love these kind of cookies, thanks for sharing. I don't know if you have ever tried it, but, rather than using vanilla extract, you can get vanilla bean paste. It's a syrupy,vanilla bean, slightly sweet. You can buy it in Michaels craft store. It is made from Madagascar beans which are rumored to be the best. All I know is you get that awesome vanilla speckle and taste in every recipe!
I second this suggestion! It's exactly what I used to make the Vanilla Sables. Fresh vanilla beans would have been nice, but the vanilla bean paste was an excellent substitute.
Thanks to you, I made World Peace cookies on Boxing Day (day after Christmas Day in England) with my little German grandchildren aged 3 and 7. What a success and as a result my daughter will be taking the recipe home to Germany with her. Thank you so much for that and I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.Jo in Liverpool England
