Make Valentines Day adorable with heart-shaped fun
Looking for a sweet treat to make with your significant other on Valentine’s Day? All Recipes has the perfect sugar cookie recipe that will sweeten your day, but first you’ll need a few things.
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 6 table spoons of red food dye
First, get a large mixing bowl, a baking sheet, and measuring cups. Then, grab the ingredients listed below at your local grocery store. Once you have your ingredients, add all the dry products into a large mixing bowl. Once the dry ingredients are mixed, add in your liquid products and stir until you get a playdough-like texture.
This next part depends on the preference of you and your significant other. Feel free to add 6 tablespoons of red food dye to get into the Valentine’s Day mood. Then, if you’re feeling crafty, go ahead and take an old paper towel roll and fold the end into a heart shape. This will help you make heart shaped cut outs, without having to buy expensive baking gear!
After you’re finished cutting out the dough, preheat the oven for 350 degrees. Once the oven is preheated, place your dough into the oven for 10 mins, or until brown. Once the cookies are done, let them sit for 10 mins, and enjoy!
These measurements will yield around 20 cookies. Feel free to adjust the measurements to your personal preference.
