125g butter, softened
100g white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
200g all-purpose flour (or more)
1/2 tsp baking powder
sugar, for sprinkling the tops
1) Preheat oven to 180C. Prepare two baking trays with parchment paper
2) Cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, mixing well until incorporated. Beat in vanilla extract.
3) Mix flour with baking powder and add it to the butter mixture. Stir until smooth using your hands, if needed. If the mixture is too sticky, you may add more flour. Place the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.
4) Divide the batter into small balls and roll each of them into a log. Shape into pretzels (as shown in the pictures) and sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges. Cool completely.
