Santa's Buttons

One of my family's favorite cookies is also the easiest for me to make this time of year. The recipe is called Santa's Buttons. All you do is take prepared sugar cookie dough (homemade or bought at the store), roll into 1 1/2 inch balls and then roll into red and green colored sugar. I do a dozen red and then a dozen green, continuing to alternate until the dough is gone. Bake according to recipe or package directions and you're done. Easy as that!

Would the sugar crystals melt during the baking process? The sugar cookies can also be decorated after baking. Place them on a cooling rack, and as soon as they're cooled, brush on some corn syrup which has been thinned with a little bit of water. Then sprinkle on the sugar.

No, the sugar doesn't melt during baking. The cookies flatten during baking, though, but not overly so. Kids & adults alike gobble them up.
