1 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.In a medium bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in flour by hand until the dough is smooth. Extra flour can be added if the dough is not stiff enough to roll out.
3.On a floured surface, roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
4.Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire cooling racks.

Ive made these twice now. Instead of 1/2 cup sugar, I put 2/3. I also added 1/4 tsp vanilla extract. Add jelly on top. Delish!


no flavor. very dry.




I added more sugar, flour, a splash of vanilla almond milk, and peanut butter to the dough. Then sliced little bananas on top at the end and sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar to bake the last five minutes. Delicious.


I substituted 1/4 brown sugar plus a little for 1/4 of the white sugar and the recipe turned out great!


i added a little almond milk to make it taste a little better and to make the dough a bit more doughy. it seemed a little dry to me




Since you guys said they were a bit bland, I decided to add cinnamon to them.(add to taste) They turned out great!


add a drop of jam on top and these are AMAZING


Easy to make but they\re pretty bland. I decided to add a little more sugar and jelly on top. ^^

They should taste mostly of butter (freshness & quality are important). Add a little extra sugar salt if you think they're bland, or try European style (like Kerrygold), which is cultured before churning, has less water in it.
