Tiny Cookie Valentines

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.

Ingredients

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!

I found this and a ton more really fun recipes in the “Little Book of Christmas Cooking.”

  1. Those were SO good. I think I ate half the batch myself. We’ll have to make some more if you were planning on giving them to people.

    Oh, and just so you know… I have that “Charlie says!” jingle stuck in my head. All credit goes to you on that one πŸ™‚

  2. I think she ate half of them too! HAAAAAAAAAAH!!! jUUUst kidding! I know there just weren’t enough to appease me and my love of cookies! πŸ˜‰ There was only one or two left on the plate and I kept making myself walk away… NO MORE!!! πŸ˜‰

    Oh NO!!! Not Charlie!!! Quick someone else tell me something, I can’t get that in my head again!!!
