Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookies

Our Third recipe from the Cassalingo and The Foodies’ Kitchen is one from the Martha Stewart kitchens: Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookies. We made a tiny variation, instead of adding Vanilla Extract we added Vanilla Beans. The cookies take a new level of yumminess with the vanilla beans. This recipe makes enough for 50 medium sized star cookies.
