Cookie of the Week: Bakery-style butter cookies filled with nostalgia
Grab your oven mittens, make sure you have enough powdered sugar and don't be shy, put on those stretchy pants — it's cookie season.
We're bringing back our popular cookie of the week series this holiday season, giving you a delicious cookie recipe every week leading up to Christmas. That means four different cookies to try out for friends and family, or for your office cookie swap.
Our first recipe is from Lindsey Hollenbaugh, managing editor of features. These bakery-style butter cookies look intimidating, but it's actually an incredibly easy cookie dough to make. A word of caution: This is a thick dough, you'll need a good piping bag and French star tip to make them look fancy. Lindsey tried to cheap out and just use a tip in a Ziploc bag and soon had dough oozing out of every possible crack in the bag's seam, while she sweated trying to push the dough out of the actual French tip. The little bit of effort is worth it though, for these sweet little perfect reminders of a childhood eyeing these beauties in a diner dessert counter.
