Easy Valentine Cookies

We are just a little over  two weeks from Valentine’s Day.  Each year, I try a new recipe to heighten my Valentine mood.  I recently found a super easy recipe that anyone can make – Valentine Cookies!  These pretty heart-shaped cookies are yummy (enjoy them with coffee or milk) and fun to prepare (kids will love making these).

You can use a cookie press but I shaped mine to get different sizes.  This recipe yields lots of cookies so you might need a few baking sheets.  I baked mine a couple of minutes longer since I like my cookies hard & crunchy.  Put them in a cute heart-shaped tin can and give out them as a Valentine’s gift.  You’ll melt their hearts… made by you!

Valentine Cookies

2  cups of butter (no substitutes), softened
2  cups of sugar
3  eggs
1  tablespoon vanilla extract
6  cups all-purpose flour
2  teaspoons baking powder
Red colored sugar

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.  Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

Shape with a cookie press.  Place on ungreased baking sheets.  Decorate with sugar if desired.  Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until edges are light brown.
