You're gonna want to eat these. Every day. For the rest of your life.
I'm not exaggerating, these are the best sugar cookies of all time.
I don't know if it was the special pan, the recipe, or some valentine's magic, but these are life changing.
Happy Valentine's Day! Here's the scoop:
Heart cookie pan is Wiltons. I found mine at Joann's and I'm guessing they're on sale or about to be. I'll be picking up another one because there are only six cookies to a pan. They're large.
Sugar Cookie Recipe (on the back of the Wilton's pan!)
1 cup (2 cubes) butter, softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp salt
Beat butter and sugar together until smooth. Add egg and extracts, beat until well blended. Mix flour and salt together. Add in batches to butter mixture until dough forms. Should easily form a ball.
Spray cookie forms with baking spray. Push dough into cookie forms, 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. (I did 10 minutes and they were perfect. Gas oven) We decorated some with frosting for the kid's classes, but I liked them best plain with a glass of cold milk.
(I had to do a 1 1/2 hour hot yoga class to burn off the large amount of dough and cookies I consumed while making them. Just a warning)
Give the people you love today a hug and a cookie :)
