Things to Know Upfront/Quick Tips
- You will need a Mini sized Heart Shaped Cookie Cutter
- You’ll need frosting in Valentine’s themed colors (pink, red, white, etc.) and sprinkles/beads/gems/etc.
What You Need
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cream of tartar
- pinch of salt (if desired)
- 1 cup softened butter (unsalted)
- 1 egg
- 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3/4 tsp. almond extract
Step By Step
- In a medium size bowl combine your flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and pinch of salt (if desired). Set aside.
- Cream your sugar and butter. Mix until light fluffy.
- Add in your egg, vanilla and almond extracts. Mix until combined. Scrap sides of bowl if needed.
- Grab your dough and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill in fridge for about 1 hour.
- Set your oven to 375 degrees.
- Prep a couple baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Cut/Divide your dough in two pieces. Flour your surface (counter or you can also do this on parchment paper or baking mats) and roll your dough out until it is about 1/4 inch thick.
- Grab your cookie cutters and get cutting! Place your cutouts on your baking sheet.
- Bake for 5-6 minutes. Since they are mini these are not going to need much time in the oven. Every oven is different so be sure to watch them. You don’t want them golden but just cooked or they will crack when cooling.
- Let cool on counter top/cooling rack.
- Once cooled, frost away! Use your imagination!
