Heart-Shaped Valentine’s Day Cookies Recipe
3/4 cup softened salted butter
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp almond extract
1 large egg
Pink gel food coloring
Chocolate melting candy
Pink and white sprinkles
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer, beat together your softened butter and sugar. Next, quickly mix in your almond extract and egg.
Mix in your flour and food coloring and continue to mix until you have a thick pink dough.
Flour a flat surface and roll your dough out with a rolling pin.
Use heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut out your heart shapes and place them onto your lined baking sheets.
Bake for 8 minutes, remove them from the oven, and let your cookies cool completely.
For the topping, place one cup of chocolate melts into a microwave safe dish and microwave for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
Pour the melted chocolate into a decorating bag or Ziploc and cut a small tip off of the end. Drizzle your melted chocolate onto each cookie in a zigzag pattern.
Top each cookie with sprinkles and let them set on a piece of parchment paper for 15 minutes until the chocolate hardens. Serve and enjoy!
