Sugar Cookies for Valentine’s Day

While the kids are outside playing in the gorgeous weather, I am going to whip up a Valentine’s Day treat for them…our favorite sugar cookies!  This is the recipe that my mother has used at Christmastime for as long as I can remember.  The picture below is from the test run I did last week!

cookie2

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 t. vanilla

1 egg

1 t. cream of tartar

1 cup margarine, softened

1/2 t. almond extract

2 1/2 cup flour

1 t. baking soda

Mix powdered sugar, margarine, vanilla, almond extract, and egg.  Stir in the remaining ingredients.  I usually start with my Kitchenaid mixer and then finish mixing the dough by hand.  Cover and refrigerate for at least three hours.  When it comes out of the refrigerator, it may seem crumbly.  Mix it up and knead the dough by hand.  Roll out on a lightly floured surface and cut with cookie cutters. 

cookie

Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes.  The longer they cook, the crispier they will be.  Cool on a baking rack. 

cookie1

Once completely cool, frost with your favorite frosting.

I usually use a buttercream frosting, but this time I am going to use a powdered sugar frosting pictured above.

Ingredients

2 cups powdered sugar

2 T. vanilla

2 T. milk

food coloring if desired

Mix the vanilla and milk and add powdered sugar.  Continue to mix until it is almost a pourable consistency but not quite. 

I also made a chocolate powdered sugar recipe.  Following the above directions, I just added 2 T. of cocoa powder to the powdered sugar before combining with the liquid. 

Once you cover the cookies with frosting (it will be messy!!), allow to dry for at least an hour.

What is your favorite Valentine’s Day treat?

Distinctive Kitchens Kid’s Club Cooking Classes

Distinctive Kitchens holds cooking classes of all kinds but I especially want to share the Kid’s Club classes with you.  I am so bummed that my kids aren’t old enough for these classes yet!  The classes are open for children who are in 4th to 8th grade.  Seating is limited to 15 people and registration is required.  Each student will get to make and taste recipes and they will get a recipe booklet! 

The next Kid’s Club Cooking Class is scheduled for Saturday, March 19, 2011.  Each class is from 11am-2pm and the cost is $39.95.  For more information, visit the Reservation Page.
