Ash baked this batch of heart shape sugar cookies – check out her recipe!
1/2 tsp Almond extract
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1 Colored sugars
3 Cups Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
1 1/4 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1 Cup Butter, unsalted
1.) In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add in egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract and mix until combined.
2.) In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Make sure to spoon the flour into your measuring cup and level it off with a knife to ensure accurate measurements. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until completely combined.
3.) Roll the dough between 2 sheets of parchment or wax paper and place on a baking sheet in the refrigerator. Chill for about 20-30 minutes.
4.) Cut dough into shapes with cookie cutters and transfer to a baking sheet. Sprinkle with colored sugars and bake at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes, then transfer to a baking rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 40-50 cookies.
Have a very special Valentines day with your sweetheart
