I don’t like these, but others in the family do! This is Grandma’s recipe, as it is written:
- 1 cup butter (soft)
- 2 cups flour
- 3 Tbsp icing sugar
Mix like shortbread. Roll and cut, top with coloured decorations and cook in oven. When cool put together with butter icing (pink).
I beat together the butter and icing sugar (confectioner’s sugar), then gently mix in the flour until incorporated. Gather up in a ball and roll out to about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick. Cut out small shapes with cookie cutter; Grandma used a very small, fluted circle, about one inch in diameter. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and onto each cookie sprinkle on a few of those tiny little coloured balls used for cake decorating. I bake in a 350F oven, for around 8 to 10 minutes; these should not brown, but do need to be baked through.
Cool completely. Make little sandwiches by spreading one cookie with buttercream icing (pink, or not!), then sticking another one to it.
