  • Preheat you oven to 325 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the vanilla and beat until well mixed.
  • Stir in the flour and salt until well mixed. Form the dough into a square, wrap in saran wrap and chill 20-30 minutes.
  • Once chilled, roll the shortbread between two layers of parchment paper (one on the bottom, one on top of the shortbread dough) until about 1/2 inch thick - you should have roughly a 10x8 inch square.
  • Cut into 24 squares that are 2x1.5 inches big and then gently transfer the parchment paper onto a cookie sheet.
  • Whisk the egg white and water until well mixed and brush on top of each cookie. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.
  • Bake until the edges are JUST golden brown, about 12-14 minutes (they set up a lot!) Cool on the pan COMPLETELY
