Heart Shaped Shortbread Cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups butter, softened
  • 1 Cup white sugar
  • 4 Cups purpose flour
  • 2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pam cooking spray

In a large mixing bowl cream butter and sugar until fluffy and light. Stir in vanilla.  Add flour and mix with sugar mixture. Cover and chill for one hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two cookie sheets and chill. Use message cookie cutters and small heart shaped cookie cutters.  Dough might be fragile so use spatula to slide onto baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cookies cool for 10 minutes and decorate.

I sprinkled just a little pink sugar over the shortbread cookies, but they really don’t need any additional decoration.

  1. That cookie cutter is awesome and shortbread is my very favorite cookie – even better than chocolate chip. I’m going to check and see if my Word Market has that cookie cutter in stock. Beautiful cookies!
