Peanut Butter Button Cookies

These cookies are super, SUPER easy to make and very cute to boot! I'm afraid this entry will be mostly pictures because there aren't many instructions for me to include. You can use a homemade cookie recipe, or just one from a cookie mix like we did last night. You will also need a cap from a water bottle or 2 liter pop bottle and a small straw. A coffee stirrer will work, but we didn't have one around and needed to improvise. Luckily we had Caprisons, so Abbie drank some juice while I started making the cookie dough. Don't worry, I was careful to clean the straw out with soap and water before using it with the cookies.

After you have made the batter, roll the dough into about 1" balls. They should fit easily inside the water bottle cap. 

Bake the cookies according to the recipe directions. Ours took about 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Just after removing the cookies from the oven, We took the bottle caps and pressed down the center of the cookies.

Next, we took the small Caprison straw to poke out four holes from the center of each cookie to make them look like buttons.

See, super easy! They only took a few minutes to make and about as much time to disappear. I think these could be cute cupcake decorations or maybe strung up as a garland of sorts. Just eating them also works. If you have any other cute and easy cookie recipes, let me know because I would love to make them and add them to the blog! :]
