Omg!! I made the girliest cookies of all times and just HAD to share them with y’all!!!! Around Christmas time I started to dabble with my icing skills. We no longer have a designated cookie person so I decided since I’m a wannabe chef, why but give it a try! Turns out I have a hidden talent for cookie baking (hopefully my frosting skills catch up soon lol ) Every last person to have one of my delicious treats, even one hater who had no idea they were my creation, raved about the deliciousness! Only took me 30’something years to discover this talent, I wonder what else I have been keeping a secret from myself lol....
Since I had a cookie craving and Valentine’s Day is a little over a month away, I decided to take my Christmas cookie recipe and turn it into a Valentine’s Day one! Enjoy!!!
• 1 Cup Butter
• 1 Cup Granulated White Sugar
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 egg
• 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
• 3 cups All Purpose Flour
• 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
• 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
• 2 Tsp Milk
• Food Coloring
Preheat oven to 350° F. In the mixing bowl, mix butter and sugar together until smooth. Beat in egg.
Add vanilla. In a separate bowl combine baking powder with the flour and add a little at a time to the wet ingredients. The dough will be very stiff.
DO NOT CHILL THE DOUGH. Roll out onto a nonstick surface or use a piece of parchment paper and cut. You want these cookies to be on the thicker side! Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on the cookie sheet until firm enough to transfer to a cooling rack.
While cookies are cooling, mix the milk and powdered sugar together. Add vanilla. Mix in food coloring and mix!
Frost and sprinkle cooled cookies.
Serve & enjoy!
