Frosted Heart Sugar Cookies


Happy Valentines Day to all my fabulous readers! I wanted to share these fun heart shaped cookies with you today in honor of the holiday of love.


I got it in my head that I wanted to make heart cookies and so I made it my weekend mission to find a heart-shaped cookie cutter and get down to business. My original plan was to make simple sugar cookies and use them to top my vanilla cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting, but once I had my cupcakes done I realized I didn't want to smoosh the pretty frosting down with a cookie. I also had some frosting leftover from the cupcakes so I decided to frost and sprinkle the cookies too! It turned out to be a pretty good plan, I think.


Frosted Heart Sugar Cookies
makes about 2 dozen small to medium cookies
1 C flour
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C vegan butter
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
optional: chocolate frosting recipe here, sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350 F. With an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together. Add the vanilla and mix. Sift the flour and baking powder then mix into the butter mixture until a dough if formed. Place in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Roll the dough out and cut with the cookie cutters of your choice.
Bake for 12-15 minutes and let cool before topping with frosting and sprinkles.


These cookies might not be the neatest or prettiest things I've ever made, but as long as they taste good I don't mind! Are you a fan of frosted cookies or do you prefer them plain? Personally I think sprinkles make everything a little more fun.


As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope you are spending the day with those you love!

    1. Thanks! I agree, you can't really go wrong with frosting and sprinkles.
