Valentines Day Sugar Cookies


Valentines Day Sugar Cookies

How cute are these little cookies…. This is my sugar cookie recipe that you can make for any holiday.  I went with a white cookie this time and added red sprinkles for the perfect little Valentines day cookie.  Did I mention this sugar cookie recipe is the best you’ll ever make?  You get a soft and chewy vanilla cookie with just a hint of almond. So good!

Valentines Day Sugar Cookies

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup sugar
2 sticks cold butter, into chunks
1 egg
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract


2 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk (more if needed)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl stir flour and baking powder together and set aside. Mix the butter and sugar together until smooth. Add the egg and both the vanilla and almond extract and mix until everything is combined.

Gradually add the flour and baking powder and mixture until blended.

Roll dough out onto floured surface to be just over 1/4" thick. Cut cookies cutters to make whatever shapes you’d like. I made simple round cookies but you can make hearts if you’d like. Place each cookie onto parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Place cookie sheet in freezer for about 10 minutes.

Remove from freezer and bake for 10-12 minutes.  Place cookie sheet on rack and cool for 5 minutes. Then move cookies from baking sheet to rack with parchment underneath to catch drips.

In a small bowl, stir all glaze ingredients together until smooth and runny. Dip each cookie into the glaze and place onto cooling rack to let excess glaze drip down. Top with desired sprinkles and dry 1-2 hours.
