Instructions

1
Draw an X with butter on the bottom of a 9x9-inch walled pan and line it with parchment, ensuring that some extra parchment hangs over the sides. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, approximately 3 minutes. Beat in vanilla until completely incorporated. Sift in flour, cornstarch, and semolina and mix on low speed until dough comes together. Finish mixing by hand to avoid overworking the dough. Press dough into the prepared pan using your fingers. Cover top with plastic wrap and press or roll with a small round cylinder.
