Glamorous Valentine’s Day Cookies
February 5, 2017 / Stephanie Miskew / 4 Comments
Nothing says Valentine’s Day like something sweet for your Sweetheart. Especially something homemade with a glamorous flair! Our Glamorous Valentine’s Day Cookies fit the bill perfectly, are utterly delicious and super easy to make. In fact, they are in such demand here at Chez Miskew, I use this same cookie recipe for virtually every holiday. I simply swap out the cookie cutters and frosting colors to suit the season or holiday. The jig is up, my foodie friends!
While the recipe itself is pretty basic, I think what makes these cookies so darn special is the salt. I always use Kosher salt when baking and there’s just something about the balance of sweet and salty in this recipe that makes these cookies super addictive. So if you enjoy kettle corn, bacon chocolate bars, or Blue cheese and Sauternes you seriously need to try these cookies!
For Valentine’s Day, simply use a heart-shaped cookie cutter, I love the 4-inch Wilton heart cookie cutter pictured above, to create the romantic shape and then dress the cookies up with pink and red frosting and oodles of glamorous sprinkles. An oversize cookie cutter like this one makes the cookies feel more special. I also highly recommend pairing these cookies with a tall, cold glass of milk – preferably 2%.
Our Glamorous Valentine’s Cookies are perfect for bringing to school parties or giving as special treats for your friends, neighbors and, of course, your significant other. Just be sure to enjoy a couple yourself first because they have a habit of disappearing very quickly!
