These delicious festive cookies are like sugar cookies with a hint of apple cider in them.
I literally could not stop eating them! They are so addictive. The raw sugar on the outside gives it a perfect crunch.
These cookies are not too sweet and go great with a glass of milk. (What cookie doesn’t)
Apple Cider Buttons
Makes 60 cookies
1 cup butter, softened
6 Tbs granulated sugar
1 Tbs instant hot apple cider mix
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1 Tbs milk
1/2 cup turbinado (raw) sugar
1. Preheat oven to 375 F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, apple cider mix, vanilla, and salt. Beat until combined.
Beat in flour until combined. Add milk and beat until dough just comes together.
2. Shape dough into 3/4-inch balls. Roll balls in turbinado sugar. Place balls 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Using the bottom of a glass or the palm of your hand, press balls to 1/4 inch thick. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are firm or bottoms are light brown. Let cool. Enjoy.
