Valentines Vanilla Heart Cookies

These are the perfect Valentines Day cookie. 
They are not regular sugar cookies. 
They are vanilla cookies. 
And they are absolutely delicious!

Ingredients Needed ; 
~ 1 1/2 Cups Flour 
~ 3/4 Cup Butter (not margarine), cut up into little pieces
 ~ 1 Cup Sugar
~ 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract 
~ 1 Egg (not pictured .. opps)

What To Do ; 
~ Sift flour into a large bowl.
~ Add butter and crumble into flour until you get the texture of bread crumbs 
~ Add sugar, vanilla, and egg
~ Stir well 
~ NOTE ~ the dough will appear crumbly (have faith) 
~ Take about half the dough in your hands and pack it into a large ball 
~ Roll out on lightly floured surface (only roll half the dough at a time)
~ Don't roll too thin or the cookies will burn 
~ Use cookie cutter then transfer shapes onto a large cookie sheet 
~ Leave some space between each cookie on the sheet - these cookies spread a little bit, but they don't lose their shape 
~ Bake in a preheated oven of 350 degree for 10 - 12 minutes until golden

Before Baking

After Baking ~ On Cooling Rack 

~ Transfer to wire rack for cool immediately 
~ Do not decorate cookies until completely cooled, as tempting as it is 
~ Decorate in any way you wish 

All Decorated!

                      I only baked half of the batch of cookies. I froze the other half in a freezer safe bag to be baked on another date.
