Button Cookies Recipe (step by step photos)

Cookie is a small, flat, baked treat, usually containing fat, flour, eggs and sugar. This term is used in the United States and Canada. In most English-speaking countries outside North America, the most common term for this is biscuit. Today, I’m going to make button cookies using my favorite rolled sugar cookie recipe and some tools that available in my kitchen. The recipe is adapted from:

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened 
  • 1 cups white sugar 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until
    smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking 
    powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least 1 hour or 

2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.

3. FOR BUTTON COOKIES. Roll out dough on floured surface
    1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into shape with round cookie cutter.
    Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Use 2 
    cm to 2.5 cm bottle cap to press onto the centre of each 
    cookie to form outer edge. Use a straw to make 4 holes in 
    the center of each cookie by pressing and twisting the straw 
    until the hole is formed. 


4. Bake 6 to 8 minutes in preheated oven. Cool completely.
