Ingredients

Cookies

Decorations, as desired

  • Red, pink and white cookie icings
  • Assorted Valentine candy sprinkles

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, crumble cookie dough and add flour, kneading until well blended. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COMBINING WITH FLOUR.)
  • 2
    On floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with floured 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. If desired, cut out centers from some of the 3-inch hearts with floured 1- to 1 1/2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutters. On ungreased cookie sheets, place cutouts 2 inches apart, placing larger and smaller hearts on separate cookie sheets. Reroll dough, and cut additional cookies.
  • 3
    Bake large hearts 11 to 13 minutes, small hearts 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely.
  • 4
    Frost and decorate cookies, using photo as a guide.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Cookie icing is smooth, easy to use, and sets up nicely on these heart sugar cookies. It can be found in the baking/decorating aisle and is sold in pouches.
  • tip 2
    Run a toothpick through different colors of frosting to create designs on your Valentine's heart sugar cookies.
  • tip 3
    To help get cutout cookies off the surface to the cookie sheet, lightly press the back of the cookie spatula in flour and slide under cookie dough for easy lifting. Place on cookie sheets and bake cookies on middle oven rack, one sheet at a time.
