Button Cookie Recipe
These super simple button cookies are a great way to add a quick treat to a baby shower sweets table. Tinted sugar cookie dough makes them pop without having to pull out any icing. A beautiful addition to a "Welcome Baby" sweets table.
STEP 1: MAKE THE DOUGH
Prepare the Ultimate Sugar Cookie Dough per the instructions, wrap and refrigerate for 1/2 hour to firm up.
STEP 2: TINT THE DOUGH
Remove the dough and on a lightly floured surface, knead in some pink food coloring (just a tiny drop for light pink), until thoroughly mixed. Wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 3 hours or overnight before rolling and cutting.
STEP 3: ROLL, CUT AND BAKE
Remove 1/3 of the dough from the fridge and let sit for 10 minutes to soften slightly. On a floured surface, roll the dough to 1/8" thickness. Use a circle cutter to cut cookies out and place them on a parchment lined tray. Once on the tray, use the reverse side of a smaller cutter to make an inner indentation. Use a straw end to punch out 4 button holes. Place the tray in the fridge for 15 minutes to chill the cookies before baking. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes until just very lightly browned. Repeat with remaining dough.
