In honor of Valentine's Day, I made some simple hearts to share. I even thought, why not write a valentine or two? I also was trying to ply Alexis with sweets so she would take some photos for me.
I then realized I don't have a boyfriend to share them with… nor someone to write a valentine to.
More for my roommates and I.
Math lesson: Three is a good snacking number for one person.
Don't they just seem to say "Take me. Eat me. I'm full of sugar; you'll love me. I promise."
Sugar Cookies: Makes 12 cookies
1/2 cup salted butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silpats.
Beat butter and sugar together in a stand mixer on a medium speed until fluffy.
Add egg and continue to beat an addition minute.
Add flour and mix on a slow speed.
Roll out dough and use cookie cutters to cut out desired shaped.
Bake for 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes. They are delicious without icing, but if you feel the need for more sugar--no judgement-- just combine 1 cup powdered sugar and 4 tsp milk together.
