Valentine Sugar Cookie Recipe

Such a fun idea for Valentine's Day - make these mini heart Valentine Sugar Cookies.

It’s a February tradition in our house to make our favorite Valentine Sugar Cookies. There’s nothing better than something a little sweet and homemade for the ones you love. These Valentine sugar cookies make the best gift for teachers, grandparents, co-workers, anyone really! And they are so fun to decorate. We like to make it a family affair with the different colored icing. Last year we used five different shades of pink to create ombre cookies. But this year, my six year old, Calla, chose the color palette – bright pinks, turquoise, orange and yellow to top off our mini heart cookies.

You really can’t go wrong with this Valentine Sugar Cookie Recipe. Wrap them up in a cellaphane bag and top with a ribbon, or put in a mason jar and use a Valentine’s tag we created. Share the love!
