Crisp Button Cookies Recipe

Almost too cute to eat but too sweet to resist, these clever cookies take minutes to make. They’ll disappear as quickly! Bonnie Buckley - Kansas City, Missouri
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:40 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • Multi-colored pull-and-peel licorice

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, salt and cardamom; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. round cookie cutter dipped in flour. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. With the top of a 1/4-cup measuring cup dipped in flour, press an indented edge into each cookie. Using a plastic straw, cut out four holes near the center of the cookie.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Lace licorice through the holes in each button; trim licorice. Yield: about 3 dozen.
