Cookie Dough Ingredients :
  • 1 ½ cups of all purpose flour

  • 1 ¼ cup of sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons of milk

  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • ½ cup (1 stick) of light butter

  10. Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out cookies and place them on a greased cookie sheet.

  12. Bake at 350 degrees for ten to fifteen minutes.

Icing Ingredients :
  • 1 box of powdered sugar

  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of light butter

  2. Melt the butter in saucepan over low heat.

  3. Mix the butter and powdered sugar together.

  4. Add the milk and vanilla, mix well.

  5. Spread the icing on the cookies, and decorate with sprinkles.

To personalize each cookie with your favorite saying, follow these simple directions :
  • Pour half of the icing into a bowl. Add a few drops of red food coloring and mix unit you reach the desired shade of pink or red.

  • Spread a layer of the white icing over the cookies.

  • Place the red icing into a plastic sandwich bag, and seal tightly.

  • Push the icing down to one corner of the plastic bag.

  • Cut a small tip (no larger than the tip of a pencil) off of the corner of
    the bag.

  • Using the plastic bag as your pastry bag, write fun message on the cookies by gently squeezing the icing out of the bottom corner, and “writing” on each cookie.
