Butter Cookies

Welcome to day three of kid friendly food week. These cookies are yummy and easy to put together and are usually made from goods kept on hand. I’m already formulating a couple of variations on the basic recipe, one of which I am testing today.

I am all about food that uses easily found ingredients but still tastes delicious and these butter cookies fit the bill. A great thing about them is they’re eggless so if you have an allergy in the family these can be enjoyed by all.
