Hi! I made these slice n’ bake valentines cookies today. They are delicious! This is my first time making these cookies and most of them turned out pretty well. These are the perfect cookie for Valentines day. Everyone will love them! Get the recipe for the dough below. Once you have the dough made, take 1/3 of the dough and use food coloring to die it red. Roll the red dough out pretty thick and cut hearts out of it.
Once you cut the hearts out line them up and stick them together. Try not to ruin the shape. Next you will use the normal dough,roll it into little snakes of dough and cover the row of hearts(sorry I don’t have a picture for this step)
When you have the whole heart row covered gently roll it to get it round. Once that’s done cover it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or over night.
Once refrigerated, slice your cookies 1/2 inch thick and bake for 8-10 mins, or until bottoms are slightly golden brown.
