Button Cookies ala Martha

These are the cutest cookies I have ever seen! How perfect are they? Gorgeous simple sugar cookies, I think these are the main reason I chose a button theme. So sweet! Here are the instructions from Martha (of course.)

Tools and Materials
Cookie cutter
Drinking glass
Buttons (optional)
Tissue paper
Wrapping paper

1. Prepare dough for gingerbread or sugar cookies, and cut out round shapes with a cookie cutter.

2. Add an inner ring by gently pressing a glass into dough. Poke four button holes into each cookie with a skewer, and bake.

3. Stack several cooled cookies, and thread a thin ribbon through the holes. Line boxes with tissue paper, arrange cookies, wrap, and sew ribbon through buttons for added effect.
