Bawling Butter Cookies


When I first started baking Christmas cookies these brought me to tears. I don’t typically cry, but if you don’t get the dough firm enough (but not too firm) in the refrigerator you might start to cry too. However, there is no crying in baking so take a knee, hydrate, and get to work.


1 pound butter, softened

2 cup’s powdered sugar

5 cups flour

2 eggs

3 tsp. vanilla


Cream butter and sugar.

Add eggs and vanilla

Mix in flour.

Refrigerate dough for an hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Using a cookie press, make any shapes you want and decorate them with whatever you desire. I used a variety of combinations of coconut, jam, chocolate, and nuts.
