button up: button sugar cookies

Last night at 12:30a.m. I remembered that I’d be meeting my old collegues for a xmas lunch the next day and thought that I should bring something special. I had seen in the latest issue of MS Kids the cutest sugar cookies shaped into buttons and figured that I could at least get the dough mixed before heading to bed. I followed the sugar cookie recipe in the magazine and divided the dough into 3, dying 1 part red, 1 part green and keeping the other part au naturale. Into the fridge it went and off to bed me and Cornelius went. The next morning, I rolled out the dough, used my lovely circle cutters to full effect and poked the button holes with a bamboo skewer. They turned out so pretty and colourful and I wrapped them up in waxed paper and tied the little bundles up with ribbon and a pin, popped them into my pink handbag and off I walked towards downtown and a delicious lunch at Brioche.

    Kickpleat, I meant to leave a comment ages ago, but this holidays business is stealing time away left and right! At any rate, these cookies are adorable! And deceptively simple too. Terrific!
