Tasty Thursday: Sugar Cookies

In honor of Valentine’s Day earlier this week, I whipped up some delicious homemade sugar cookies– heart-shaped, of course.

What You’ll Need (Ingredients):
1 & 1/2 cups sugar
2 & 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup butter
1 egg
1 heart-shaped cookie cutter (optional)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Mix together: 1 cup butter, 1 & 1/2 cups sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 1 egg, 1 & 3/4 cups flour.
Slowly mix in 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 cup flour.

Roll out cookie dough and use cookie cutter to make heart-shape (optional) or roll dough into balls.
Put dough on cookie tray and place in oven, bake for 8 minutes.

Cookie dough in various heart-shaped sizes

 Place cookies on cooling rack for 3-5 minutes and then they’re all done. Happy Baking!
