My Favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe

V-day Cookies

OK so if you have been following my blog you know I am in the middle of a diet lifestyle adjustment. Cookies are my weakness and it probably wasn’t the smartest decision to bake a plate of temptation like this. But my 3 year old absolutely loves baking and Target had these cute heart shaped cookie cut-outs, I mean what was I supposed to do ;).

A few months ago I found the most amazing sugar cookie recipe!! here. You do not have to refrigerate the dough and she mentions a little trick so the cookies won’t loose their shape in the oven. She freezes the dough for ten minutes on the cookie sheets before putting them in the oven. I mean if that is a common trick how come no one has shared that with me? For years my cookies have been coming out of the oven three times the size they were supposed to be! Anyways,the cookies are perfectly sweet, with a hint of almond and melt in your mouth. I love them. I’m not sure I will ever do sugar cookies any other way!

For the frosting I used white chocolate melts. then dipped the cookies in the white chocolate. For the different colors just separate the melted chocolate and add food coloring. Please Note: the food coloring does make the melted chocolate thicker (don’t know why) and causes it to harden quicker. So you will need to work a little fast

And in case you were wondering yes I might of had one or two of the smaller cookies 🙂
