Shortbread Buttons

Tell me these aren't cute!

1 1/4 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar (or 3 tbsp brown sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice)
1/2 cup butter
Optional: food coloring of your choice

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter until in fine crumbs. Add food coloring. Knead dough with your hands until smooth.

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/2" thick and cut out circles about 1 1/2" in diameter. Then use a 1" diameter cookie cutter to indent an inner circle (do not cut through). Use a small piping tip or thin straw to make four "button" holes.
Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
