Best Valentine’s Day Cookies Recipe

I’m sure Sunny has posted this somewhere else on FRM, but in case you haven’t tried her FANTASTIC cut-out cookie recipe, here it is. It makes perfect cookies (though I find I need to work in a bit of extra flour–still ends up soft and delicious) and they frost beautifully.

If not for this year, tuck this little gem away for any other time you need a perfect cut-out cookie recipe!


½ cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 Tbs milk
½ Tbs vanilla
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
2 cups flour

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg, milk, and vanilla. Mix well. Add dry ingredients. Mix well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, if possible. Roll out onto floured surface, kneading in extra flour as necessary. Either roll into balls and press with a glass or roll out and cut into shapes. Place on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 300°F for 11-12 minutes.
