It's never happened before but I think me being a little under the weather, I didn't pay attention to it, so I'm refilling it with some quick and easy butter cookies.

Press down with a fork.
Sprinkle a little sugar on top of each cookie.

  1. The cookies look so good. Butter cookies is one my favorites.

  2. Those look so yummy. Wish I had a few and a nice cold glass of milk!
    I love the fact it is egg less because we don't always have eggs on hand and those would be the perfect treat to whip up when the sweet tooth attacks and we don't have eggs.

  3. am empty cookie jar just won't do!! Those look like the perfect way to fill it up!!

  4. These were so yummy! I just made them! Thanks for the recipe!

  12. Hi there!

    I came across your blog and saw that you enjoy cooking and experimenting with new recipes. Stonyfield Farm makes Oikos Organic Greek yogurt which can be used in a variety of ways while cooking – in baking, as a substitute for sour cream and mayonnaise, in dips and sauces and to create tasty low-fat dishes. Greek yogurt is strained, making it thicker and more versatile in recipes than regular yogurt. Oikos is organic, which means it's made without artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners, and it's made from organic milk produced without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, or artificial growth hormones (rBST). We feel that organic is not only better for you, but better for the planet as well.

    I'd love to send you some coupons to give Oikos a try. If you're interested just send me an email at and let me know where to send them.

    Take care,
    Stonyfield Farm

  13. I made these last night and didn't get a single one of them. They went that fast! I'm under strict orders by the children to make more real soon and to make a bigger batch. Take Care :)

    Thank you for your consideration. We also have two two bottle give a ways for your blog.

  21. I love the simplicity of this recipe, I have all of the ingredients on hand.
    I wonder what these would be like with a little cinnamon?
    Must add this to next weeks menu!
    Thanks Sandra, keep up the good work!

  22. well there's one way to consume a stick of butter :)

    I've got a batch in the oven now, and wondering how they would be made with almond extract

  23. Sandra,

    I tried to make these cookies but they just melted into flat buttery blobs in the oven. Where did I go wrong? I used the correct measurements. Is your stick of butter smaller than mine?

  24. Oh my! These look so good!
    Wanted to let you know I'm featuring your sweet and spicy chicken again over at The Krazy Kitchen on Monday :-)

  25. Sandra, I made these up last night and I love the simplicity of the recipe.
    Not only did it take hardly any time to whip up but it took even less time to devour the delicious treats!

  26. Just wanted to let you know that my little ones have become ADDICTED to your butter cookies. Seriously.

    Must be their Danish heritage...LOL!

    Simple recipe...simply delicious!


  27. I just made these cookies and they are VERY good!!! I will definately be making these again. kinda taste like a good buttery mexican wedding cake cookie. I highly reccommend this recipe! :)

  28. I tried these cookies and i loved it. I recommended this to my friends and sisters. You made my day.

  29. Very unhappy with this recipe. I did the exact measurements with checking and rechecking. This made a crumbly mess. It wouldn't even roll into a ball. With my husband unemployed I tried to find a recipe that included the ingredients I have on had. I wasted every ingredient on this. Disappointed.

  30. I made these tonight. Nice taste, but not as easy as the recipe makes out. The dough was too soft, so I stuck it in the fridge while I washed up dinner plates.
    Then it firmed up nicely, and I was able to quickly work with my hands to roll and shape them. However, they melted in the oven, flattened out and stuck to one another. I took them out after 11 minutes, they were slightly golden. But VERY SOFT. The good thing about this was that I was able to separate them with a knife with minimal damage. On cooling, they firmed up. Slight soft bite to them.
    VERY LOVELY TASTE. But recipe is not informative. It yielded 18 cookies. And my husband made fun of the way they looked, but went back for a second one.
