Valentine Cookies

Pin It Valentine Cookies

All the Valentine Cookies I decorated

The two heart shaped cookies cutters I used
I made red and white heart shaped cookies yesterday and used two different recipes. For the white hearts, I used Buddy Valastro's Icebox Christmas Cookies recipe. Buddy warns the dough is super sticky and that was such a pain but with the right amount of flour on the top of the dough, the rolling pin and your hands it was feasible. Just have patience with it.

I found a clip of Buddy making these cookies on the Rachael Ray Show so here is the link for it: http://www.rachaelrayshow.com/food/recipes/buddy-valastros-icebox-christmas-cookies/. The texture of these cookies are really supple and nice. They are not too sweet and really remind me of Italian cookies I have eaten from a bakery before, so I think I did a good job for my first try using this recipe.

For the red cookies, I kept it simple and used 1 package of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix. I used 1 4 oz. bottle of McCormick Red Food Coloring to turn the dough red. I use this recipe for my Christmas cookies but if you are only using 1 package, just cut the recipe in half. Here is the link for the Sugar Cookies recipe: http://twofrys.blogspot.com/2011/12/holiday-cookies.html.
