Valentine Heart Sugar Cookies


For Valentine’s Day give your someone special heart sugar cookies that are made and decorated with love {and yummy buttercream frosting!}.  Your kids can also have fun decorating them for Valentine’s treats.  I used my recipe for Old-Fashioned Soft Sugar Cookies for soft, melt-in-your-mouth cookies but the Puffy Sugar Cookies are soft and puffy and just as good.

These heart cookies make the perfect homemade Valentine treat and they are a fun Valentine's Day project for your kids.
  • Sugar cookies, baked in heart shapes
  • Buttercream frosting
  • Red food coloring *{or beet juice}
  • Sprinkles
  1. Divide the frosting into separate bowls, leaving some white and coloring the others red, pink and other colors of your choice.
  2. I used Wilton icing bags and tips to decorate my hearts, using white Sugar Pearls as accents.
  3. If you or your kids prefer, you can simply spread the icing with a table knife.
