Valentine’s Day is already one of the sweetest holidays because it’s centered around love, affection, and appreciation. But the added sweetness to push it out in front of the rest of the holidays is the fact that it involves lots and lots of dessert. The main Valentine’s activity is giving candy to friends, or chocolates to your significant other. It might be time to break away from that this year though, and really step it up a notch. Ditch the basic chocolate-covered strawberries and store-bought heart-shaped candies, and make these delicious cookies from scratch to say “I love you!”
What to Buy
To make the cookies, you only need a few key ingredients: all-purpose flour, salt, butter, granulated sugar, an egg, vanilla extract, and milk. Run to the store, pick these up, and then we’ll let you know how to turn all of that into warm, delicious cookies to split with your S/O.
How to Make
Just a few steps stand between you and your Valentine’s Day-themed dessert. Start by whisking together flour, baking powder, and salt. Then in a separate bowl, mix the butter and sugar with a hand mixer. Add in eggs, milk, and vanilla, and keep going. Slowly add in the flour. Wrap your dough and let it cool in the fridge for 60 minutes. Preheat oven to 350, roll the dough out and use heart cookie cutters to make little cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Make the frosting separately, starting with the cream cheese and butter. Add in dry ingredients. Get crazy and split up the icing into 3 bowls, adding in a different amount of red food coloring in each bowl. Decorate your hearts pink and red!
The Perfect Night
Might we suggest a little bit of a different Valentine’s Day? Baking is a really fun activity to do with your significant other, so if you don’t want to make these solo, let that be your date night! It’s simple, affordable, and so much fun. Have a stay-at-home Valentine’s Day and order a pizza, bake some delicious cookies together, and watch a movie. It will be the best night of your life!
