Valentines Day Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Butter (I Use Unsalted)
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 whole Eggs Yolks
  • 4 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 teaspoons Almond Extract
  • 4 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Instructions

  1. In a mixer, beat butter and sugar until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add in 2 eggs and 2 egg yolks and mix until combined.
  3. Add in vanilla and almond extract; mix until combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking powder. Slowly (about a cup at a time) add flour to butter mixture and combine. You can use a mixer or not, just depends on how strong you are.
  5. Mix ingredients until they are just combined.
  6. Put dough in some Saran wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour. When you are ready to bake, heat oven to 350 degrees. Roll dough out, cut out cookies, and bake for 6-8 minutes.

    The first picture literally makes my mouth water. Your cookies look so yummy. I think the icing is what I like best!

    The cookies are beautiful. I love the lines with the little hearts on them. Have you ever done a tutorial or written how to do squiggles/cornelli lace?

    Personally I like artsy fartsy ;-) I think the white cookie with the multi color dots is very cute. I am sure mine would look nothing like that, hopefully they will look like a cookie.

    These are amazing! Love the stripes and the squiggles! And I’m always looking for a good sugar cookie and frosting recipe so I’m excited to try yours!
