Cream Cheese Button Cookies
100g butter softened
100g cream cheese softened
1C white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
gel food colourings
In a bowl cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix until smooth.
Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Divide dough in to your required number of colours and tint each batch of dough with colour of your choice (it must be gel paste colourings).
Chill dough in fridge at least 2 hours. The dough become soft quickly. I rolled my dough out on cook-a sheets and cut chilled dough in to buttons, using 2 of these round circle cutters. use the next size down circle to imprint the round indentation. I used a tip 3 piping nozzle to imprint the button holes.
Preheat oven 180C. Bake 10 minutes. Chill completed cookie designs for 5-10 mins before baking. This helps to ensure the cookies don't spread.
I printed the cards on the top of my cookie bags, using this wonderful free printable from the lovely ladies at On To Baby blog. You can change the colours to suit your own theme and there's other great free button printables for party invites, table cards & much more. The bags are our size 2 cello bags
