Valentine's Day Cookies
3 sticks of unsalted butter,softened
1 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
Blend together the butter & sugar.Add the vanilla.Add the salt & flour.Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface,and cut into desired shapes with cookie cutter.I have obviously used hearts. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-9 minutes or until golden around the edges.Let cool.
Another decorating alternative is dipping the cookies in melting chocolate,or dipping a fork in melted chocolate and drizzling the chocolate onto the cookies.Then they can also be decorated with sprinkles if desired.
Yes,in case you are wondering,there are actually chocolate cookies in todays' picture as well.Stay tuned for that recipe this week!
