What ingredients are needed?

Shortbread dough is usually used to make cookies. It consists of flour, sugar, eggs and butter. But to make the dessert really tasty, you should use only high-quality ingredients, as well as adhere to certain proportions.

So, the list of components necessary for preparing the dough:

  • half a glass of sugar
  • a full glass of flour,
  • 100 g butter,
  • two yolks.

Button Formation

Finally, the most interesting is the formation of cookies. To make small buttons, prepare round molds and sticks. As forms you can use small plastic cups or flipped glasses. And if you want the buttons to turn out to be miniature, then take the bottle caps. The holes will be more realistic if you make them a plastic pipe for beverages.

Is everything you need ready? Then start creating. First, roll the dough into a layer about 5 or 6 millimeters thick. Next, cut round parts, in each of them do with a straw or a stick (for example, a wooden skewer or a match, if there is nothing else) in two or four holes.

Preheat the oven to 180 or 190 degrees. Take a baking sheet, cover the bottom with baking paper (parchment) and lightly grease with butter. Place the cookies, leaving small holes between them. Next, send the pan to the oven for twenty to thirty minutes, depending on the power of the device. Dessert readiness can be checked by shade. When the buttons get a light appetizing ruddy, you can remove them from the oven.


A few tips for hostess:

  • Instead of sugar, you can use powder, then the texture will be more delicate and airy.
  • If desired, you can add natural flavors to the dough, such as a pinch of cinnamon or vanilla.
  • To make the buttons easier and more convenient, send the dough after mixing into the refrigerator for literally twenty to thirty minutes. The oil will harden and the mass will become more plastic and dense. If you immediately go to the formation, the cookies can blur and soften.
  • So that during the formation of the dough does not stick to the molds, their edges can be dipped in flour.
  • You can make cookie buttons even brighter and more colorful. To do this, use cocoa and juices of fruits and vegetables of saturated colors, for example, beetroot, carrot, pomegranate, peach, cherry, apricot. Brown chocolate will add chocolate or cocoa. Food coloring can also be used for coloring. Divide the dough into several equal parts and add one coloring component to each.
  • Bright multi-colored cookies can be used as an original decoration for the Christmas tree. To do this, thread the threads or ribbons into the holes and tie edible buttons to the branches of the New Year's tree. And after the holiday you can eat them with pleasure.
  • To make ready-made cookies even more attractive and have a light shine on the surface, you can smear them with egg white before baking.
  • Buttons can be made even more realistic, having convex edges. To do this, you need to form circles, and then using the form, having a smaller diameter, make a recess along the edge.
  • Dessert will be funny if you form buttons of different sizes. Children will love this for sure.

Prepare delicious, funny and unusual cookies for your children or guests to please them!
