Cute as a Button Cookies!

These cookies are cute as a button, and would make adorable Baby Birthday Party or Baby Shower treats, too!

What you’ll need

  • Batch of sugar cookie dough (homemade or store bought)
  • Food coloring
  • Plastic kitchen gloves (for kneading food coloring into the dough)
  • Rolling pin
  • Flour
  • Wax paper
  • Small round cookie or fondant cutters (about 2 1/4 inches wide)
  • Small bottle cap (slightly smaller than the fondant cutter)
  • Wooden kitchen skewer
  • Spatula
  • Baking sheet
  • Wire rack

How to make it

  1. Divide the dough into thirds or quarters. Then knead a different shade of food coloring into each portion of dough. Chill the dough so that it will be stiff enough to hold its shape while baking.
  2. When you’re ready to start baking, work with one color of dough at a time. Roll the dough out to about a 1/4-inch thickness and use the cookie or fondant cutter to cut out a bunch of small circles. If you like, use a small bottle cap to gently imprint an inner circle on some or all of the buttons.
  3. Use the blunt end of the kitchen skewer to make a set of two or four buttonholes in the center of each cookie.
  4. Place the cookies on a baking sheet and bake them according to the recipe directions. Transfer the baked cookies to a wire rack to cool before serving. Enjoy!
