Does anyone have a recipe for Italian butter cookies like you get in an Italian bakery -- kinda sandy, kinda wonderful?

This is my favorite butter cookie. It's by Alice Medrich. It's very much like the one that Bunnee linked, but there's no baking powder. Letting it sit overnight is key. I can never wait, so I always slice one off the day of after several hours. They're much better the next day. I roll them in Demerara sugar before baking for a fun crunch.

I've never had a butter cookie from an Italian bakery, but this recipe from Melissa Clark is amazing. Be sure to use cultured butter if you try it. http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1015209-cultured-butter-cookies
