Egg on a Plate cookies.. so Cute right?

Thanks to Amy for sharing the below with me via Twitter, these are too cute not to share
  
Butter Cut-Out Cookies:  
1 cup unsalted butter*, softened
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Make the dough:  Add the butter to a large-size mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium-low speed until smooth, about 2-3 minutes.  Beat in sugar and vanilla on medium speed, until well combined.  Sift together flour and salt.  Gradually beat into butter mixture on low speed.
*If you don't have unsalted butter, don't worry.  Substitute salted butter and skip adding the 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Shape the dough:  Transfer dough onto a piece of plastic wrap and pat into an 8” disc.  Wrap with the plastic and chill for one hour.  (If you're in a hurry, just pop it into the freezer until firm).  On a lightly floured surface or parchment paper, roll out dough to 1/4" thick and cut into 2.5" - 3" rounds, using a circular cookie cutter.  Use a small glass, dipped in flour, to press the center of the "plate", as shown above.  Reroll until all dough is used.  Place the cookies about 1" apart on ungreased baking sheets (I like to line my pans with parchment paper), and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Bake the cookies:  Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake 12-15 minutes until firm, but not brown.  Cool on a wire rack.
