If there is something that you should know about me, it's that I love sugar. Every holiday should involve lots and lots of sugar and Valentine's Day is no exception.
I've had great success with my Sugar Cookie recipe. Here it is, for anyone who is interested.
Plain and Simple Sugar Cookies
(from The Clueless Baker)
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, beat until creamy. Stir in the flour and baking powder alternately with the evaporated milk to make a stiff dough. Knead a few times by hand to make it workable. Refridgerate at least 10 minutes before using.
2. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
3. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut shapes. Bake 8-10 minutes.
4. Let cool and decorate.
