Ingredients:

4 sticks (1 pound) unsalted butter, softened slightly
1-1/3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt 3 large egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla
4-3/4 cups flour
Using a standing electric mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment: In a large bowl cream together the butter, sugar and salt. Add the yolks and
vanilla, and beat until smooth. Add the flour gradually, beating on low
speed, until it is incorporated. Makes approximately 3 pounds of dough.
If you don't have a standing mixer a food processor can be used. USE A MACHINE WITH A BOWL CAPACITY OF 11 CUPS OR LARGER, fitted with a steel blade: In the bowl of a food processor, blend the flour, sugar, butter (cut into small pieces), and salt until the mixture is crumbly. Add the yolks and vanilla, and blend the mixture, scraping the bowl occasionally, until it forms a
dough.

Since the publication of my first book One Dough Fifty Cookies in 1998, I have continued to experiment and create new cookies using the original Master Dough. Prepare a batch of the master dough, cut it in half and use each half as the base for a new cookie. Here are two never before published one dough cookie recipes.
