This is what we will do:
- Make heart shape cut-out sugar cookies.
- Make frosting.
- Make sprinkles.
- Package and deliver our cookies to our unsuspecting love victim :)
These cookies are fantastic! Seriously, they are the best sugar cookie I've tasted!
* 1 cup butter (softened)
* 1.5 cups powdered sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 tsp. vanilla
* 2.5 cups flour
* 1 tsp. baking soda
* 1 heaping tsp. cream of tartar.
Bake at 350 for 8 minutes.
I just threw all of this stuff in the mixer. It didn't mix super well, so I formed a ball with my hands. Then I put it in the refrigerator for awhile. I'm not sure if that step is necessary. When I took it out of the fridge I formed a smaller ball with my hands (the dough needed to be softened a bit). I rolled it out on the cutting board with a little flour and cut out heart shapes! Easy Peasy! It makes about 3 dozen cookies.
* 1 cup shortening (I didn't have any so I used a cup of softened butter)
* 1.5 tsps Vanilla
* 1/2 tsp. lemon extract
* 4.5 cups sifted powdered sugar (I don't sift)
* 3-4 Tbsp. milk
I threw all of this stuff into the mixer. The milk made it creamy. I separated it into 3 containers and added food coloring to get the different colors. I made blue, pink, and yellow!
* 1/4 cup sugar
* Food Coloring
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
I filled a muffin tin with 1/4 c. sugar and added food coloring. Then I stirred each one and set it in the oven. After 10 mins the sugar hardens and I scooped it into little bowls. I had to smash the sugar with a spoon to get rid of the clumps. Its super fun to have the variety of vibrant colors without the expense of purchasing the different bottles of sprinkles!
