While we normally don't do much for Valentine's Day, I thought I would make some pink heart cookies. The girls were really excited about it.
I took the opportunity to make more of those Soft Sugar Cookies that I mentioned a while back. They are so good! And, instead of making buttercream icing, I made cream cheese icing! Oh, and I am very happy with the results!
These cookies come together so quickly. And, the baking time is next to nothing. I definitely think you should make some. And soon!
The dough is pretty easy to work with. I just kept checking to make sure I was rolling the dough the right thickness.
Here they are ready to go in the oven.
Don't over cook them! You want them to be soft in the center. These were just right. I baked them for 7 minutes.
I halved the recipe from the link and, as you can see, it yields quite a bit of cookies! (I need a cooling rack or two. I use kitchen towels. Oh well!)
I iced them with that oh-so-lovely cream cheese icing and popped some conversation hearts on some of them.
I'm not sure I am going to be able to share them. :) They are really, really good!
Happy Valentine's Day!
