Holiday Butter Cookie Recipe


Holiday Butter Cookie Recipe

These simple, four ingredient Holiday Butter Cookies are absolutely delicious! They can be decorated with nuts, sprinkles, cherries and more. You are only limited by your imagination.

Prep Time:45 minutes
Cook time:13 minutes

Ingredients:

2 sticks Butter, softened
1 1/2 cups Flour
1/2 cup Confectionery Sugar
1 tsp Almond extract
Decorating garnish: maraschino cherries, nuts, holiday sprinkles or colored sugar

Directions:

• Preheat oven to 350°.
• In a mixing bowl combine butter, flour, confectionery sugar and almond extract; beat with an electric mixer until smooth
• Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
• Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
• Remove dough from refrigerator. You need to work quickly because as the dough warms at room temperature, it becomes much softer. Scoop a teaspoon of batter into your hand and shape as a ball or oblong, flattening slightly.
• Space dough balls 2″ apart on cookie sheet.
• Add chosen decorating garnish to top of cookie.
• Bake in preheated 350° for 13 minutes or until bottom of cookies are lightly browned (DO NOT OVER BAKE!)
• Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes.
• Transfer onto wire racks to finish cooling.
• Store in a container with a lid and separate each layer with wax paper.

  1. Hi Ann – These sound awesome, can’t wait to try them!!

  2. Thanks Ann! Not sure if I should thank you or curse you. 😉 I went right into the kitchen to make them after reading this..

    After I mixed them up and put them in the frig, I made 3 batches of Date Nut Bars, a batch of my favorite childhood cookies, and finally rolled these babies up and the first batch just came out of the oven..
    Pretty tasty! Guess mine were a little larger than yours though.. I got just shy of 2 doz with my cookie scoop. No matter… tasty! But now Im tired. 😉

  3. I want some LOL 😉

  4. The cookies look so yummy. I want some too!!

  5. mine melted all over the cookie sheet ugh i did everything the recipes says

    • How long did you beat the ingredients, Jennie? Too much air (from over beating) can cause spread. That and cookie thickness are the most likely culprits when butter cookies spread (thicker cookies can spread more).

  6. Your butter cookies looks so good Ann! I want one right now LOL!
