Shortbread button cookies

I'm a little late to the party on this one since the original post is from January, but I'm compelled to ooh and aah publicly. These are little shortbread button cookies. They're adorable, as is the printable recipe with lovely calligraphy and illustrations. Get it here from Forty-sixth at Grace.

I love those,too. I loved them the first time I saw them, and I still love them now. And that calligraphy IS amazing.

I think they'd be adorable for a baby shower.

I am a pretty good cook and can't wait to make these cookies for Saturday's sewathon. I am unable to translate grams to cups and teaspoons? Can anyone help me?
What a lovely presentation.

How did I not see those? All I do is blog (I mean work!) all day...

Makes me want to plan a party around those.

I love these! I am a baker and these would make amazing little cookies with ganache sandwiched in between. I am thinking green tea, lemon butter, and chocolate with matching ganache in between. OH MY! Thank you so much for this post!

Helena said...

These are just about the cutest things I've ever seen. I must make these with my little girl. :-)

Those are just adorable, hopefully not too hard to make, might try this when my little nieces come and visit

Susan said...

I looked up the metric conversions and these are hopefully the answers but someone please correct me if I'm mistaken:

360 grams flour = 2 1/2 cups
18 grams cornstarch = 1 1/2 Tablespoons
300 grams butter = 1 1/4 cups, or 2 1/2 sticks
160 grams sugar = 1 1/2 cups

Is "icing sugar" the same as confectioners or powdered sugar? I'm thinking it is.

I love buttons and cookies, so this is absolutely lovely. And the recipe card is so rockin'!

Rachel said...

Incredible. I want to make them right now. So much easier to make these than macaroons, which were all (and still are) the rage. Thanks for this!
