This is an old recipe from the Fort Worth newspaper. Apparently several readers wrote in that these cookies helped curb morning sickness during pregnancy. I made these cookies for a sweet friend who will have a baby this summer, but I can assure you that these are still delicious even if you're not pregnant. Enjoy!
Vienna Sugar Cookies
1 package active dry yeast
1/2 cup lukewarm water (98-103 degrees F)
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter until creamy. Gradually add flour, blending well. Add yeast mixture; blend well. Refrigerate dough until chilled.
Put sugar on a large piece of wax paper. Pinch off pieces of chilled dough the size of small walnuts and shape into balls. Working with one ball of dough at a time, press ball flat into sugar until dough is thin. Keep flipping dough over and pressing it into sugar, until it is the size of a flat doughnut. Place on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven for 10-15 minutes or until very lightly browned. Transfer to racks to cool. Makes 3 dozen cookies.
