Valentine's Day Sugar Cookies!

 Enjoy baking and celebrating the day of love with heart shaped sugar cookies! 


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

  3. Add the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract (if using) to the butter mixture. Mix until well combined.

  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just until the dough comes together. Be careful not to overmix.

  5. Divide the dough in half, shape each half into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (or overnight).

  6. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  7. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the chilled dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Use heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut out your cookies.

  8. Place the cut-out cookies on the prepared baking sheets, leaving a little space between each.

  9. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. Keep an eye on them to prevent over-baking.

  10. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  11. Once the cookies are completely cooled, decorate them with royal icing and sprinkles. Let the icing set before storing the cookies in an airtight container.
