Yesterday I made Valentine’s Day sugar cookies to celebrate the holiday of love, and really cute colors and hearts. They turned out delicious and the perfect treat.
2.5cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla almond milk
flour, for rolling out dough
- Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Place butter and sugar in large bowl of electric stand mixer and beat. Add egg and milk and beat to combine. Put mixer on low speed, gradually add flour, and beat. wrap in waxed paper, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F or in my case 325 degrees F because I use a countertop oven
- Sprinkle surface where you will roll out dough with flour. Remove the wrapped pack of dough from refrigerator and sprinkle rolling pin with flour, and roll out dough. Cut into desired shape, place at least 1-inch apart on baking sheet with parchment, and bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to turn brown around the edges. Let sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes after removal from oven and then move to complete cooling on wire rack.
2 tbsp butter softened
2.5 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp vanilla almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
food coloring or sprinkles
Put all ingredients in a mixer. Add milk until it’s the consistency you want.
Spread on cookies and decorate with sprinkles
Happy Valentines Day
