Valentine’s Day cookies

Posted on Updated on

I decided to try a new sugar cookie recipe, the last ones I made weren’t sweet enough for me. I also wanted to use my new cookie cutters that Annie sent me. Specifically the heart shaped cutter, my son loved them before he tasted them because of the shape!

The recipe I used is “The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies“. After reading reviews on the site I decided to add an extra cup of sugar and I think I doubled the Vanilla that I put in, maybe. (I always over estimate on the extract because I’m too lazy to find the little measuring spoons.) The frosting on the cookies is the same recipe I always use, powdered sugar, food coloring and milk, it’s yummy and easy. The recipe says it makes 5 dozen cookies, I got 11 dozen out of one batch. I don’t know if my cookie cutters are too small or what but I thought the cookies were a good size. These definitely are the best sugar cookies I’ve ever made. If you decide to make them add that extra cup of sugar, you won’t be disappointed.

I decided that I wanted to make some classic sugar cookies in the shape of Christmas trees so I browsed around for a simple recipe with decent reviews. I also looked for a good icing recipe. This is what I found.
