Apple Cider Buttons
1 cup butter, softened
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, apple cider mix, vanilla, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in flour until combined. Add milk and beat until dough just comes together.
2. Shape dough into 3/4 inch balls. Roll balls in turbinado sugar. Place balls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Using the bottom of a glass press balls to 1/4 inch thickness. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are firm and bottoms are light brown. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool.
HH thought these cookies were very professional, and something you would get at a top end bakery. I am mailing a fresh batch of these to my dad on Monday for his birthday.
I am not a hot sauce person, but I loved these pretzels.
