Valentine Sugar Cookies

Especially during the Christmas holiday, I find myself a little too busy to make cut out cookies. So I often leave them for special days like Valentine’s Day. I have been using this recipe for Valentine Sugar Cookies for many years and my boys absolutely love it! I baked a half batch a couple days ago and had planned on sharing the recipe with you, and before I could even get them frosted, 40 cookies were gone within hours.

So I whipped up another batch last night, and set out to bake and decorate them today. This time though, I made a full batch and had them all done and photographed before the boys got home from school. And it’s a good thing too, the minute they saw them they grabbed a plate and piled them on.

While I absolutely love the look of sugar cookies decorated fancy with royal icing, I simply don’t have the time or patience to spend on them. I have also tried many different sugar cookie recipes, and my boys just love these. Not only are they soft and a little thicker than a normal sugar cookie, they have a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg in them giving them a wonderful flavor.

Frosting for Valentine Sugar Cookies

After falling in love with the Fluffy Marshmallow Frosting I used on the Conversation Heart Cupcakes earlier this week, I just had to make another batch for these Valentine Sugar Cookies. And the Micro Heart Sprinkles make me happy!

While I’m sure there are many, I think I have just about every heart shape cookie cutter around.

Besides the Micro Heart Sprinkles, the Valentine Nonpareils are another favorite of mine.
