What You’ll Need
Batch of sugar cookie dough*
Red food coloring
Pair of disposable kitchen gloves (for kneading food coloring into the dough)
Rolling pin
Wax paper
Kitchen knife
Baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Yogurt-covered raisins
Wire cooling rack
Helpful Tip
* For the best results, the sugar cookie dough should be on the stiff side. You may need to knead a little extra flour into store-bought doughs so the cookies will hold their shape well during baking.
How To Make It
  • 1

    Wearing plastic kitchen gloves, knead red food coloring into the cookie dough (this is a fun job for kids). Wrap the dough in plastic and keep it chilled until you're ready to use it.

  • 2

    Print and cut out the template.

  • 3

    Heat the oven. Cover your work surface with flour-dusted wax paper, and roll the dough out to about 5/8-inch thickness.

  • 4

    Use the template and a kitchen knife to cut out the cookies and then transfer them to the baking sheet.

  • 5

    Gently press two yogurt-covered raisin "buttons" partway into the dough on each cookie. Don't press too hard, just enough for the button to stick in place.

  • 6

    Bake and cool the cookies according to the recipe directions. Enjoy!
