Sweet Butter Cookies

Joyce Newhard

These have been a "must" in our home during Christmas for 40 years. Quantity will depend on the pattern used on the cookie press/shooter.

This recipe was pretty good but a little too much flour tasting. But still very tasty.

I made this recipe with my 7 year old Christmas 05 and she had a blast. We were even able to add food coloring to the dough. This was a fun, simple and quick recipe (great for kids) but I felt the flavor could have been better with a more complex recipe.
