Recipe by Dissie

They are a delicious buttery shortbread cookie. Very easy to make, since you are not using the cookie press. Don't substitute margarine for the butter!

Can I use margarine?

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream butter with 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla using mixer.
  3. Add the flour to make batter stiff.
  4. Make into 2 rolls using waxed paper.
  5. Divide remaining sugar into bowls and color with food coloring. I usually do atleast 2 colors. Place sugar on a piece of waxed paper and spread sugar out.
  6. Roll cookie tube in colored sugar. Wrap rolls up using wax paper. Refrigerate rolls to stiffen. 30-45 minutes.
  7. Slice in 1/4 inch slices and bake just until bottom starts to become golden. Do not overbake. 7-9 minutes.
  8. Prep time includes refrigeration time.
