Valentine Hearts Butter Cookies


For the Cookies:

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 ounces butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon tablbaking powder
  • 1 tablespoon tvanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg white and sprinkles of your choice and color. for decoration


Arrange flour on a working board forming a circle.

Add sugar, baking powder, salt, eggs, butter, vanilla extract.

With your hands start mixing the ingredients from the center of the circle.

Add some flour to your hands if too sticky and keep on working until dough is made.

Set dough aside for about 10 minutes.

Always sprinkle a little flour on the board and use a little piece of dough at the time.

With a rolling pin, stretch the dough, not too thin, not too thick, about 1/4 of an inch.

Use cookie cutters (in this case, hearts) and place them on a greased cookie sheet

I spray them with PAM

Beat egg white and brush it on the cookies so topping will stick

Sprinkle sugar crystals, chocolate , confetti, anything you like on it.

Bake in a preheated oven at 325 for about 15-20 minutes.
