These Valentine’s Day cookies are way better than chocolates.
whipping cream 1 tablespoon red
food coloring 3¾ cups flour 2 teaspoons
1 cup butter, softened 1 cup white sugar 2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Powdered sugar, for dusting
This Valentine’s Day, make cookies that speak louder than chocolates.
1. Stir together whipping cream and food coloring in a small bowl. In another bowl, stir together flour and baking powder.
2. Cream together butter and white sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Stir in eggs and vanilla, then flour mixture, then whipping cream mixture. Divide dough in half for easier handling. Cover and chill until firm, 1 to 2 hours.
3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 2 cookie sheets.
4. Roll out dough to
¼-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut into hearts, or other shapes as desired, with a cookie cutter. Arrange cookies
1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheets. [From our kitchen: If you want to use colored sugar instead of powdered, sprinkle cookies with about ½ cup colored sugar here, before baking.]
5. Bake until bottoms and edges of cookies are light brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Dust with powdered sugar.
