Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Sugar cookies are my absolute favourite cookie to make for all sorts of holidays! Last year I made some Easter egg cookies with gorgeous pastel coloured icing. This year I wanted to make some cute heart cookies, with Bens help of course, to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
This cookie recipe is the same as the one I made last year but with a different, more fun icing recipe!
Cookie recipe: 350 degrees • 7-10 minutes
1 cup softened butter
1 cup white sugar
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp baking power
1 tsp vanilla
Cream the sugar and butter together, add the egg and vanilla, mix. Add flour and baking powder in a separate bowl, and slowly incorporate into wet mixture. Once dough is formed, roll out onto a lightly floured surface and cut into desired shape. Place onto a tray covered in parchment paper and cook on 350 for 7-10 minutes
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup pureed raspberries
First purée the raspberries in a food processor or blender, or you could even use your electric mixer. In a separate bowl, mix icing sugar, butter and vanilla. Add the raspberry purée and mix, don’t mix too much or the icing will become over whipped.
