These light and colorful butter cookies would be great for brunch, school party, or any other event held during the Spring. 

Spring Color Icing for these Iced Butter Cookies

I divided the icing up into three small bowls to make three different colors. I mixed each bowl of icing with a few drops of food coloring.  Any Spring color would look great.

Spring and New Beginnings

As Christians, our new beginning comes when we accept Jesus as our Savior. We get to start all over as we are born again.  Jesus washes us clean by completely forgiving us of all our sins. We get a fresh start in life; A new beginning. The other great thing about Springtime is that we remember and celebrate the fact that Jesus died on the cross and rose again.  He is Alive!  We can look forward to being with Him one glorious day.  Yes, I really do love everything about Springtime.

Song of Solomon 2:11-12  "For behold, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone.  The flowers have already appeared in the land; The time has arrived for pruning the vines, And the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land."

Iced Butter Cookies Recipe – Adapted from Miss Daisy Celebrates Tennessee Cookbook by Daisy King

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 3/4 cup corn starch, sifted

  • 3/4 cup confectioners sugar, sifted

Use a large mixing bowl and an electric mixer to combine all the ingredients.

The recipe says to drop the cookies by teaspoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet.  I used a teaspoon size ice cream scoop and dropped them onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
