Vienna Sugar Cookies


  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar


  1. Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water.
  2. In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter until creamy. Gradually add flour, blending well. Add yeast mixture; blend well.
  3. Refrigerate dough until chilled.
  4. Put sugar on a large piece of wax paper. Pinch off pieces of chilled dough the size of small walnuts and shape into balls.
