“Flirty Cookies” for Valentine’s Day

Here’s to love, romance, and flirtations. The next time you’re “in the mood” why not bake up a batch of “Flirty Cookies”? Here’s how.

Sugar Cookie Recipe
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg  (lightly beaten)
  • 2 tbsps milk
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

In a medium bowl combine flour, salt, and baking powder. In a second bowl, cream the butter and sugar with a handheld mixer for 3-5 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla, and mix again. Slowly add the dry ingredients, mixing until combined.

Scoop the dough into plastic wrap and flatten into a disk. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Roll the dough out on a floured surface, rotating and flipping often so it doesn’t stick. You want it to be about 1/8-inch thick. Cut the dough into desired heart shapes and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, until just faintly golden. Let rest on sheets for 1 minute, then transfer to racks to cool completely.

Now comes the decorating fun! Check out this video from Sweet Ambs.
