Valentine Cookies Recipe

Monday, February 8, 2016
Nothing says love more than heart shaped cookies and our Valentine cookies recipe is sure to be a hit.
If you are looking for a Valentine treat idea for your loves, these Valentine cut out cookies are perfect.


When you bake some Valentine cookies, you are saying I love you and my Mom's best sugar cookie cutout recipe is the perfect soft, not too sweet cookie that rolls out nice and firm. I like my Valentine cutouts nice and thick. Don't bake them too long just until slightly golden brown.

I always bake my cookies on parchment paper now. It just makes for the perfect even baking and the cookies never stick to the cookie sheet. So worth the cost and then you just toss and put your cookie sheets away with no washing.


These cookies hold up nicely and are ready for decorating those Valentine cookies with royal icing.
I like to use powdered sugar with milk and just a dash of vanilla. To me that is the perfect royal icing recipe.
