Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Sift the confectioners' sugar over, then gently stir in.
Sprinkle the vanilla extract over, then press the ingredients together to make a smooth dough.
Cover and chill for at least 3 hours.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, using a lightly floured rolling pin, to about 1/4 inch thick.
Cut into rounds with a floured 2-inch fluted cutter.
Transfer to baking sheets, leaving about 1/2 inch space around each.
Bake in a preheated 375° oven for about 12 minutes until lightly golden.
Leave to set on the baking sheets for a few minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack and leave to cool.
Sift the confectioners' sugar and mix to a smooth consistency with about 1 tablespoon cold water and the Cognac.
Spread a thin layer of glace icing over the tops of half of the cookies.
Leave to set.
