Snowman Button Cookies

We are currently residing in the extremely frigid (-20 F last night), snowed in part of the country right now and as much as I'd love some fresh air, I'm not about to step outside with all the kids in this weather. If you're like us and spending quite a bit of time indoors, here is something you can do with your kids to keep busy!
It might be too cold outside to build a snowman, but you sure can make some snowman buttons inside!
Snowman Button Cookies
3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
1 egg
1 t. vanilla extract
2 c. flour
1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
Blend the butter and sugar together. Beat in the egg and then stir in the vanilla extract. Slowly add the flour and cocoa and mix until soft dough forms.
Split the dough in half and cover each with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375. Unwrap the dough and nestle between two sheets of plastic wrap. Roll into 1/8" thickness.
Using the top of a wide-mouthed canning jar cut the dough into circles. Take a regular-sized canning jar and gently press inside the larger circle to leave a circular indent.

Poke four button holes into the cookie. (We used bamboo skewers).

Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 6 minutes.
