Why not serve these cookies with a love potion cocktail? That would be a double dose of love.
Valentine’s day is a special day to me. It was my mother’s birthday. This will be the second year when I won’t be able to help her celebrate it since she passed away. My dad used to really spoil her and heart shaped anything was at the top of his list.
I love to make themed cookies for any holiday. They are fun to make and assemble and it always puts me in the holiday mood. For another delicious and romantic cookie, try these Valentine’s Day Kiss Cookies.
Treat your loved one to these Valentine’s Day Heart Shaped Sugar Cookies.
These Heart shaped sugar cookies have two colors of dough and are easy to make. Just use a smaller cookie cutter and switch the middle of one to the outside of the other and then bake. I love the pastel tone that the alternating dough takes on. They look lovely and light and have a melt in your mouth taste.
When preparing the dough, use red food coloring to color half of the dough. Make as many as you wish and refrigerate the dough to use later. The dough keeps well for about a week if wrapped in plastic wrap and you can freeze it for about 3 months.
Perfect for when you want just a few special cookies. (Like tonight for my honey and me as a sweet treat after our dinner of cilantro lime grilled shrimp kebabs and rice!)f
They can even be decorated with you loved one’s name for an extra special touch! Decorate with a sprinkle of sugar and serve with love and pride!
The taste is delicate and light, like any good sugar cookie is. The cookies are the perfect treat to take to your child’s school party, or for a holiday cookie swap. And, of course, the way to treat your loved one to show you care.
