Button Cookie Tutorial #sewingparty

Easy Button Cookies

Directions: Slice a store-bought log of sugar cookie dough into quarter-inch rounds. Place on parchment-lined cookie sheet, and bake according to package instructions. Remove from oven and let set for two minutes. Using an over-sized straw, cut two or four holes in the center of the cooling cookies. Continue to cool and serve.

  1. Very cute, great idea!! Love the colors you chose for contrast, too. Me being an avid paper crafter (mostly scrapbooking, a little dabbling in cards) to take the cookies one step further, you could take a piece of the blue yarn or a heavy duty thread and thread two or three cookies on the plate and tie little bows in the button. Save those cookies for last, untie the bow and remove and eat the cookie!

  3. How about adding string licroice candy threaded thru the holes, this would be the perfect edible addition to this cookie!

  4. I was thinking that lacing them with thin licorice called LACES would be really cute! And edible! So cute! Thanks for the inspiration.
