    I’ve been playing around. Here are some cookies I am contemplating using in the near future… think any are keepers? And be honest!


    I’m sorta getting artsy fartsy. Dont know why.





    Valentines Day Cookies


        • 1 1/2 c Butter (I Use Unsalted)
        • 2 c Sugar
        • 2 whole Eggs
        • 2 whole Eggs Yolks
        • 4 tsp. Vanilla Extract
        • 2 tsp. Almond Extract
        • 4 c All-purpose Flour
        • 1 tsp. Salt
        • 1 tsp. Baking Powder


        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.



        Im working on some Valentines petit fours… hopefully (finally!)

        I am loving these colors!! Look beautiful and tasty..

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

        These are gorgeous! I just linked to them in my post-but shoot I just want to link everything from you.

        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?

        Yes. Keepers. Amazing. Truly.

        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.

        So adorable!!

        LOVE the stripes with a heart. So simple but lovely.

        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!

        i love these! do you outline and flood the cookies to make the frosting look like this??

        Don't Pass on Dessert!
