Ingredients

Valentines Cookies

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp red food coloring

Cookie Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • red food coloring

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl.
  • Add in the eggs, vanilla, and food coloring, until the desired color. 
  • Mix in the baking soda and add in the flour 1/2 a cup at a time.
  • Roll the dough out, until the dough is 1/8 inch thick. From there, cut the cookies out with a heart shaped cookie cutter. 
  • Put the cookies on a baking sheet 2-inches apart.
  • Cook in the oven for 7-9 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown, on parchment paper.
  • Mix together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until the desired consistency, to make the glaze. 
  • Add a few drops of red food coloring, and swirl with a toothpick or spoon a few times, until the colors become tie-die. Make sure you do not over-swirl, or the cookies will not have a marbled effect.
  • Take a cooled cookie, and dip it into the glaze, and take it out and put it back out on a plate. As you dip the cookies, you may have to swirl more food coloring. 
  • Serve when the glaze hardens, as a delicious valentines day treat!
