Berlinerkranser

Berlinerkranser

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 hard cooked egg yolk, sieved
1 raw egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 slightly beaten egg white
1/3 cup (14) sugar cubes, crushed

Beat butter for 30 seconds. Add powdered sugar and beat until fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Stir in flour. Cover and chill one hour. Preheat oven to 325 F. Work with a small amount of dough at a time, keeping the rest chilled until needed. Using about one tablespoon of dough for each cookie, roll into six inch ropes. Shape each rope into a wreath, overlapping (form a cross) about 1 inch from the ends. Brush with egg white. Sprinkle with crushed sugar cubes. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 - 17 minutes or until golden. Cool about one minute before removing to a wire rack.
