button biscuits

When I was around 8 years old one of my friends lived in a house
behind her granma's haberdashery shop, it was like Wonderland to me.
In a room there were a big table and a machine to make buttons.
My friend's grand mother sometimes let us made some after a lot of nagging of course.
That perhaps is why I'm so fond of buttons.

When I saw these made by Nikole Herriot, I had to give it a try.
Mine are not perfect but they taste good.

Everything you posted today is so lovely (well it usually always is)! :) I am in love in Fanja's rabbit for so long now... would be happy with a print also! :) I hope Anita likes them.
Have fun, *

The prints remind me of Alice in Wonderland. Maybe they are?

how funny, i was just looking at those buttons on Nikole's blog and thinking i'd make them for a friend's birthday later this month. i like them in this natural colour too!

To Nath: the natural colour is the best, I tried the coloured ones but when you put them in the oven the colour change and is not so pretty.
But I def reccomend them they are delicious!
Happy baking!
