We’re gearing up for Valentine’s Day with these fun and delicious heart shaped shortbread cookies.
I received this Message Cookie Set by World Market in a Gift Swap and knew it was perfect for Valentine’s Day treats!
Heart Shaped Shortbread Cookies
- 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.
Simply place in sailplane bags, and cute tag, tie with pretty ribbon and voila’ your Valentine’s Day treat, party favor, or gift for your kids teachers and classmates is ready to be served!
