I would use two dowels to connect the apron to the top. Place these towards the center of the apron. If they are placed within 6-8” of center, expansion will be negligable. For added strength use figure 8 fasteners to connect the legs to the top.
I don’t think wooden buttons would offer enough strength in this application.

Good luck
