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.
How adorable! Love how you wrapped them.
i love them! love!
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!
Thanks Molly, they are indeed the prettiest cookies I’ve made!
