This year I wasn’t really feeling a red & green Christmas. Nope, this year was felt like a blue Christmas. My Gingerbread House was white and blue and purple. And this year’s ornament cookies were blue.
And while I used the same cookie cutters as last year, I put a little spin on them this year. After cutting the cookies out, I dug through my collection of vintage buttons and chose some of the most decorative ones and made a deep impression into the raw dough.
I learned through experimenting that the impression must be deep and the buttons with large grooves make the most dynamic impressions.
After baking, I flooded the cookies with baby blue royal icing and added a lovely trim of sugar pearls.
The Button Ornaments are so dainty and pretty, I wish I could hang them on my tree!
