Total Time


1 cup sugar

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

2 tablespoons orange juice

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

Pink paste food color

Purple paste food color

Edible glitter or coarse grain sugar, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine sugar and butter in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and orange juice; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough into thirds. Knead pink food color into 1 portion. Knead purple food color into second portion. Leave third portion plain.

  3. STEP 3

    Flatten each third into disk shape. Wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight until firm.

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  5. STEP 5

    Use one-half of each dough disk (keeping remaining dough refrigerated); alternately place spoonfuls of doughs onto lightly floured surface to create marbled effect. Roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. Place cookies, 1 inch apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with edible glitter, if desired. Bake 7-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
