Cute cookies are the best way to add character to any dessert spread and these DIY button cookies are no exception. These quirky cookies might have guests unsure whether they’re a decorative accent or scrumptious treat so you may have to let it be known before they dive in. Created using a simple shortbread recipe, these button cookies can be made by simply shaping your unbaked treats before the oven and punching holes in the middle. Feel free to get creative and do a variety of shapes, sizes and number of holes or keep it classic with uniform fasteners.
These DIY cookie buttons make a perfect present for your sweet toothed friends and family. Once they’re baked, slide the cookies onto a piece of ribbon and you’ll have friends second-guessing before they take a taste.
