Directions

  1. To make the cookies:
    1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
    2. Line a baking Sheet with aluminum Foil and spray with baking spray, set aside.
    3. In a bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
    4. In another bowl, mix together the oil, eggs, sugar extract and zest. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms.
    5. Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Take a chunk of dough and roll it into a rope about 1 inch thick and about 8 inches long. Cut the rope in half so you have 2 pieces about 4 inches long.
    6. On the baking sheet arrange the two pieces of dough into a heart. Pinch each end together.
    7. Bake for 10 minutes or until the bottoms are slightly brown. Cool completely before glazing.
