Here’s proof that I really can cook after all…
These little cuties are basically a sugar cookie dough colored pink–and cut into tiny hearts. I poked some of them with a sucker stick for decoration before baking, then sprinkled powdered sugar and granulated sugar on them when they cooled. This makes a ridiculously small batch–so at least double it if you want more than a handful.
4 Tbsp softened butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
8 drops red food coloring
2-1/2 tsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup flour
Mix butter and sugar together. Add food coloring, vanilla and milk. Stir in flour. Roll out onto floured surface. Cut out tiny heart shapes. Poke tiny holes with a toothpick if you want. Bake at 350 degrees for 6 minutes. Leave on pan until cool. Sprinkle with sugar.
These make wonderful little additions to a Valentine treat bag or surprise for the kids. They’re just so cute!
