Gooey Butter Cookies

Source: Lil' Luna | Total Time: 45 minutes

Notes: Gooey butter cake is a St. Louis idiosyncrasy I’ve come to love in the 7 1/2 years I’ve been living here, but I prefer these cookies to the cake itself. They are super simple and can be easily made in a lot of fun colors! Make sure to put parchment paper or other nonstick baking surface down in order to keep that crisp bottom intact.

About our virtual Christmas cookie exchange

This month, in our daily email and here on our website, we’ll be sharing our favorite Christmas cookie recipes—and we’d love to feature yours!

These are the very same recipes we cook for our families and friends in our own homes. In other words, Verily Table is more than a helpful tool; it’s a community.
