  • Red and pink decorating gel, Valentines sprinkles



  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  • Cream butter, cream cheese, sugars, egg and almond in large bowl (or Kitchen-Aid) until fluffy.
  • In a separate medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Stir until soft dough forms.
  • Roll out and cut with cookie cutter. Thin dough will make crunchy cookies. If you want soft dough, it needs to be about ⅜ in. {NOTE: Try not to handle the dough too much}
  • Bake 8-10 minutes on greased pan. Let cool.

Frost and decorate

  • Make frosting by mixing all ingredients with hand mixer. If too thick, add a tad more milk. 
  • Frost the cookies with pink and red frosting.
  • Use the decorating gel to add texture to the hearts. Sprinkle with red and pink sugar sprinkles and let set to harden before gifting or delivering.
