I saw these featured on the cover of the latest Better Homes & Gardens magazine and they looked so pretty and fun to make…
So, I made them 🙂
(I couldn’t wait for Valentine’s Day)
I have a ton of Pink food coloring so I made PINK Velvet instead of red, like the magazine…
Cream together the butter and sugar…
Add in cocoa powder and baking powder…
At first I added 1/2 teaspoon of gel food coloring… just to see how pink it would be.
It wasn’t pink enough!! So I added a full teaspoon of GEL.
(Remember the gel food coloring goes a long way compared to the liquid!)
Once I got to the pink shade I desired, I slowly stared adding in the flour…
Divide the dough in half… Wrap in plastic, and chill for at least a hour.
Once the dough is chilled, roll it out on a floured work surface to 1/4 inch thick.
I had a few heart shaped cookie cutters to choose from.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 6-7 minutes.
(You don’t want them to get too brown)
After baking 🙂
Cool the cookies on wire racks.
Dust with powdered sugar for a little added sweetness 😉
Happy Valentine’s Day everybody 🙂
