With Valentine's Day only a little more than a week away I thought it would be exciting to share this easy to make sugar cookie recipe with you! I used this sugar cookie recipe but decided to wing it on the cookie style/design. Like the recipe says, these taste nearly identical to Pillsbury's seasonal sugar cookies. I LOVE Pillsbury's seasonal sugar cookies so much that I tend to buy at least 5 boxes of cookies at a time. By the time I bring them home and bake them, I've already eaten about two dozen. *No shame in my game!
Keeping in theme with the holiday, I decided to use heart and lip cookie cutters I found at my local Hobby Lobby store. They were less than $4 + 30% off!
*Baking tip: Bake your cookies on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. The cookies bake much more evenly and slide right off with no problems!
Now time for the fun part! Decorating!! You can decorate your cookies anyway you want. Sprinkles, frosting, glaze, fancy, simple- you name it, you can do it! I quickly whipped up a vanilla buttercream frosting (1 stick butter, 2 Cups powdered sugar, 1-2 Tbsp. vanilla extract, a couple dashes of heavy whipping cream) and split it in half so I could have both white and red frosting. And after that, it was time to decorate!
Sprinkles, sprinkles, and more sprinkles!
Cookies, cakes, candies, and chocolates are hands down the best part of Valentine's Day! I'll be devouring these pretties tonight! Enjoy!
