Kitchen Collectibles & A Free Valentine’s Recipe

With Valentine’s Day coming up (Gulp…I’m not ready!) tomorrow, I thought you might enjoy taking a look at designer friend Becky’s collection of kitchen goodies, and she’s also kindly agreed to share her own personal Valentine’s Day Sugar Cookie recipe with us!

I love her vintage metal measuring utensils!

And look at all the cookie cutters! (I’m experiencing severe cookie cutter envy!)

Hope you enjoy Becky’s recipe:

Sugar Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1-1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon almond extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
granulated sugar

Mix butter, margarine, confectioners sugar, egg, vanilla, and almond extract. Add in flour, soda, and cream of tartar. Cover and chill 2-3 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Divide dough in half. Roll each half to 3/16" thick on floured board. Cut into shapes and sprinkle with sugar. Place on lightly greased baking sheet and bake 7-8 minutes.

Yield: About 5 dozen cookies

Here’s Becky’s finished result. She bakes them up ahead of time before Valentine’s Day (evidently she has better time management skills than I do) and puts them in the freezer. When she’s ready, she pulls them out and gets started decorating!

She just makes up icing from confectioner's sugar, a little water, and food coloring until she gets a good consistency (not too runny or thick). She spoons it into a ziploc bag and seals the bag tightly. Then, she cuts off a tiny tip from one corner and pipes icing onto the cookies.

Yummy! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us, Becky!
