Button Cookies How-To
1. Prepare dough for gingerbread or sugar cookies, and cut out round shapes with a cookie cutter. 

2. Add an inner ring by gently pressing a glass into dough. Poke four button holes into each cookie with a skewer, and bake. 

3. Stack several cooled cookies, and thread a thin ribbon through the holes. Line boxes with tissue paper, arrange cookies, wrap, and sew ribbon through buttons for added effect.
