Tips for Valentines Day Cookies

  1. Use high-quality ingredients: Splurge on the good stuff like real butter, high-quality chocolate, and pure vanilla extract for the best flavor.
  2. Get creative with shapes: While hearts are classic, don’t be afraid to mix it up with lips, arrows, or even personalized initials.
  3. Experiment with flavors: Add a twist to traditional sugar cookies with flavors like raspberry, almond, or even a hint of champagne.
  4. Don’t overwork the dough: Mix just until the ingredients come together to ensure tender, melt-in-your-mouth cookies.
  5. Chill the dough: Refrigerate the dough for at least an hour before rolling and cutting to prevent spreading and maintain shape.
  6. Roll evenly: Use guide sticks or a rolling pin with thickness rings to ensure even rolling and perfectly shaped cookies.
  7. Embrace imperfections: Remember, homemade cookies are charming because of their slight imperfections. Embrace the rustic look!
  8. Have fun with decorating: Get creative with icing, sprinkles, and edible glitter. Mix and match colors and patterns for a whimsical look.
  9. Package them prettily: Presentation is key! Wrap your cookies in clear bags tied with ribbon or nestle them in a decorated box for a special touch.
  10. Make it a sweet activity: Invite your loved ones to join in on the fun and decorate cookies together for a memorable Valentine’s Day experience.
