Butter Cut Out Cookies are My Favorite

A sweet Hello!
I am  here today to share a couple fun ideas for packaging some goodies and making it a double gift.

Really Reasonable Ribbon  is having a fun week of sharing Holiday ideas and Recipes.
 Bonnie is offering a $10 gift certificate to RRR for one random participant and also going to give at least one ribbon club assortment away by picking a random person's comment from one random post between 12/2 to 12/12.

Today I am going to share my favorite recipe for Butter Cut out cookies-it has been used by my family for more years then I can count.
 These are my Butter Cut Out cookies decorated
 Let me share  the links for all the ribbons I used from Really Reasonable Ribbon
This fun sleigh is from Creative Cuts and More and available in many colors.
I chose to decorate with pattern paper from my stash and a few scraps of my favorite ribbons.
I used my Bow Easy Tool
and White Satin with Gold Edges to make that fun bow.
 The Red Satin Double Ruffle Ribbon was used to line the inside of the sleigh

Now You know I had to add some candy to my sleighs- these will be decorations that go on top of the platters of cookies I will be giving away.
 I wanted to share these cute little cube boxes for a few more ideas to package homemade candy or
even that fancy purchased pieces. These will look adorable as an extra gift on top of my platters.
The best thing is I got to use so many extra smaller pieces of ribbon to decorate.

So how about the best, melt in your mouth Butter cookies.
2-1/4 cups flour
1-1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 cup (4 sticks) Real Butter -salted (softened)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs beaten (room temp)
1 teaspoon real vanilla

mix together flour, baking powder and put aside.
Cream together softened butter,sugar,beaten eggs, and vanilla. Once nice and fluffy start adding the flour blend gradually. Once all blend make a large ball and wrap in wax paper and place in refrigerator/freezer for at least an hour or overnight to rest.

When ready to make, grab a hunk of dough and roll out on a floured counter with a floured rolling pin.
Use fun cookie cutter shapes to make cookies.
Bale  in a 350 oven for 8-10 minutes. They can be decorated with your favorite icing.

Contact me if you have any questions, so glad I could share my fun cookies and decorations. 
Now won't you join in with us this week and add your recipe? You could win some YUMMY ribbon
