Butter is one of my favorite cooking staples. I use it in all types of meals but especially in baking. Recently I was kindly sent some butter from Wykes Farm, so I thought we would make our favourite buttery treat. They are simple to make, use little ingredients and are fun for little ones to make.

  1. We make something very similar & love them. We call them jammy thumbprints & my 9 year old now makes them solo! Not good for my diet though. #big pink link lifeinthemumslane
