A simple way to say “I Love You” on a Valentine cookie recipe.
Combine powdered sugar and butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add 2 egg yolks and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough in half. Shape each into a ball; flatten to about 1/2 inch. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Roll out dough, one-half at a time (keeping
remaining dough refrigerated), on lightly floured surface to 1/4- to 1/8-inch
thickness. Cut with 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. Place 2 inches
apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Combine 1 egg yolk and water in bowl until well mixed. Divide mixture into several small cups; tint each with food color as desired.
Paint thin layer of egg yolk paint onto cookies, using small clean paintbrushes, to form desired designs. Bake 5-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely.

I made these cookies with my 5 year old daughter and they were great. They are easy yet very sturdy and tasted great. We used almond and vanilla extracts in lieu of the peppermint and decorated them with coloured sugar for Valentine's day. My new go-to roll out sugar cookie recipe.
I made this recipe & skipped the egg yolk paint. I dipped half of the cookie in chocolate like another similar recipe listed. They were delicious!
Thanks Land O'Lakes. I made this cookies and they are delicious, they were a hit on my little one's Valentines party.

This year, my grandson Clark is 3 years old, so I wanted to make some cookies that he would love to eat and would find to be fun, too. These adorable Powdered Sugar Snowmen Cookies are just the ticket.
Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
