Valentines Cookies

Here’s a recipe to sweeten up your Valentine!

Makes around 25

What we need:
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp of salt
1 egg
1 cup of butter
1 tsp of vanilla essence
1 tsp Red Coloring
Sprinkles 😀

How we do:

  • Preheat the oven to 400F/200C
  • In a mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
  • Add the butter and cream it in so the mixture is of a bread crumb consistency.
  • Add the egg and mix well.
  • If the consistency is not binding well or is too dry add 1 tbsp of milk.
  • Once the mixture has binded into a dough, flour a surface.
  • Roll out the cookie dough so it is about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Now the fun bit! Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out the cookies.
  • Place on a baking sheet/grease proof paper lined baking tray.
  • Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

As you can tell I tend to get excited when it comes to frosting. To make, simply mix 3/4 tsp of red coloring to 1 container of frosting. There was about 12 oz in the one I bought.
Once the cookies are removed and cooled, spread on the frosting.
Finish with sprinkles!
