Heart’s Desire Cookies

Heart Ingredients:

1 ½ stick butter, softened

½ cup sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 ½ c flour

¼ tsp salt

Pink ingredients:

1 stick of butter, softened

¾ cup sugar

1 egg

1 ½ tsp vanilla

1 ⅓ cup flour

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

2 tbsps red sugar sprinkles


Begin with making the dough for the hearts.  Beat the butter and sugar in medium speed for a couple of minutes.  Add the vanilla and egg and beat again. Add the flour and salt and mix until just incorporated.  Scrape the dough together and turn it out onto a lightly floured counter or board. Roll the dough into a log about 1 inch thick.  Wrap and refrigerate.

To make the pink dough, beat the butter and sugar together, then add the vanilla and egg.  Add the flour, baking soda, salt and sprinkles. Beat this all together until just mixed.

Heat oven to 350.  Scoop the pink dough out into about 1 ½ tsp sized balls.  Line them onto a baking sheet, keeping them at least an inch apart, then flatten them gently.  Remove the log of dough from the refrigerator and slice it into roughly ½ inch pieces. Form each piece into a heart.  Place a heart onto each pink disc and gently push them together. Bake for 12 then remove to a cooling rack. Makes about 30 cookies.
