Her butter cookies are incredibly versatile. "You can make these cookies with your press, roll'em into balls, even use a piping bag to shape them. You can add jelly or a cherry to the center. You can also try melting some dark chocolate and dipping them half way! Hope you enjoy these delicious butter cookies!"
