Butter Buttons

Hands-On Time: 20min
Cook Time: 20min
Ready In: 40min
Yield: 2 dozen cookies

This year's cutout cookie is decorated with a big "C" that does double-duty; it's both our family monogram and stands for "Christmas."



  1. Cream butter and sugar well.
  2. Add vanilla and flour to make a pliable dough.
  3. Roll out thin (1/8") and cut with a small round cutter, 1 1/2" in diameter.
  4. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees F until very lightly browned on the bottom -- about 8 - 10 minutes.
  5. Cool and frost with Royal Icing (optional).
