115 g butter, room temperature
100 g sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg white
200 g all purpose flour
1 pinch of salt
sugar cane


1.Preheat the oven to 180 °. Mix the softned butter with the sugar with the electric whisk until it is white and fluffy.
2.Add vanilla and egg white without whipping, reducing speed to a minimum. Add the flour, salt and work slowly until everything is blended. Take the dough and knead it a little until it is smooth.
3.Take off small pieces and form sticks, about 12 cm long, about the size of a little finger, fold them in half and twist them on themselves. Place them in a small bowl containing the cane sugar, so that it adheres well to a face and place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper with the sugar facing upwards. If necessary, let them rest a little in the fridge, to keep it well shaped during baking.
4.Bake for 15/18 minutes until the edges are golden. Keet in a tin container for about a week.

The butter twists are delicious and crunchy shortbread, perfect for using the egg whites from other preparations. Martha Stewart guarantees!
