Valentine's Sugar Cookie
- Quick Glance
- 15 M
- 30 M
- Makes 60 small cookies
Special Equipment: Flower- or heart-shaped cookie cutter (or a different shape, if you prefer)
Ingredients US Metric
- 2 sticks (8 oz) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- Coarse sugar, for sprinkling, whether sanding or pearl or raw
Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C). Line a couple baking sheets with parchment paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and granulated sugars until light and irresistibly fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Using a spatula, gently fold in the salt and flour just until combined.
Roll the dough between a couple of pieces of parchment paper until it’s about 1/2 inch thick.
Remove the top piece of parchment and, using a 1 1/2-inch flower cookie cutter (or whatever shape you prefer), cut out cookies and place them on the prepared sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. (If you find the dough too soft to cut with a cookie cutter, transfer the dough, still sandwiched between the parchment paper, to the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Then try again.) Sprinkle the cookies with coarse sugar.
Bake for 10 to 13 minutes, until the edges of the cookies just begin to brown. Let the cookies cool completely on wire racks before showering them upon your sweetie. Originally published February 10, 2012.
Recipe Testers' Reviews
I made these today with my three-year-old. What a easy, simple recipe to follow for someone like myself who does not have a talent for sweets. The end result was absolutely amazing. Tasty, sweet, not overly soft in the middle, and a little crisp on the edges.
The dough spread between 2 sheets of parchment paper very well. They did spread quite a bit during baking, although the end result was fantastic.
What tends to keep me from baking sugar cookies is that most recipes do not allow you just to make them. You’re supposed to make the dough, refrigerate it, roll it out (which is messy), and then bake. No longer will I go through all that trouble. These are truly stress-free sugar cookies. No refrigeration, no messy rolling (the parchment paper works like a charm), and no waiting. Just make the dough and bake.
The resulting cookie is crunchy with a chewy center, buttery and sweet. No baking soda or baking powder give the cookie a clean finish with no aftertaste. I baked mine about an inch apart, as they did spread a bit. This is a great go-to cookie recipe.
This is a fantastic, easy sugar cookie recipe. The cookies end up with a delightful crunch around the edges but have a soft center, and they aren’t too crumbly, as is the case with some sugar cookies.
It takes a while to mix in all of the flour to the dough, so be patient. Additionally, the cookies should be placed at least 1 1/2 inches apart on the pan to avoid running together. Be careful to watch them, as the edges brown quickly.
I've been searching for a quick, easy, tasty sugar cookie recipe, and voila! Here it is! The dough doesn't need to be prepared and chilled overnight. It doesn't contain baking soda or powder. All you're tasting and eating is flour, butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. The texture is wonderful as well—crunchy on the edges and delightfully chewy in the center. I wanted to see if this dough would work with our cookie cutters, so I rolled it to 1/4 inch thickness and cut shapes from a 3-inch and a 2 1/4-inch cookie cutter. They cooked to perfection in a convection oven on 350°F for 8 and 7 minutes, respectively.

The cookies came out good. I did add in 1 tbsp of milk towards the end cause the dough was not molding together. That did the trick and they were delicious.
Cat Poop Cookies for April Fool’s Day
If the above picture hasn’t completely grossed you out yet, then you must have a sick sense of humor like me so continue reading.
Everyone knows that Easter is less than a week away but did you also remember that there is another holiday the day after Easter this year? April Fool’s Day. Okay, so maybe April Fool’s Day isn’t actually considered a holiday but for all the pranksters out there it is definitely a day to celebrate.
And that is what leads me to today’s tutorial on Cat Poop Cookies. You may remember that back on Valentine’s Day I made Cupid Poop Cookies. Well, soon after posting them, a friend of mine asked if I could come up with a chocolate version of the cookies. I’m not one to back down from a challenge so I made just a couple of changes in the recipe and ….voila…. I now had more realistic looking poop cookies. Then, just to keep up with the gross factor, I picked up a cheap kitty litter box and scoop at the grocery store, filled it with crushed graham crackers and created a great way to display my poop cookies.
Don’t these look appetizing?
You can put the litter box on the floor then when someone stops by on April Fool’s Day all you have to do is bend down, pick up a cookie from it and offer it to them. If they refuse, just take a bite out of it yourself and explain how good it is.
A couple of other ideas for presenting your cookies are, to leave one laying on the mat at the front door
Or strategically place it under one of your kid’s stuffed animals so that they wake up to something like this on April Fool’s morning.
There are truly endless ways to have fun with these cookies. Before I take it too far and start to get too gross, let’s get started on the tutorial.
As I said before, the original recipe came from my Cupid Poop Cookies. All I did to alter the recipe was change the white cake mix to a chocolate cake mix and eliminate the sprinkles. I still used the white sparkle gel because I love the fresh mucusy look it gives the cookies. I also rolled some of the cookies in chopped peanuts and mini chocolate chips but I found I didn’t like the look of those quite as much as just the plain poop. It added some nice flavor but I felt the chunks sort of took away from the realistic look of them.
You’ll need a chocolate cake mix
1/4 cup of butter
3 oz. of cream cheese
White sprakle gel
Peanuts and mini chocolate chips (optional)
As per the recipe, combine the ingredients and roll the dough into logs. If you would like to add the nuts and chocolate chips, be sure to chop the peanuts first, then lay them on the counter and roll the log over them.
Shape them into poops and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Keep in mind that poop comes in all sorts of different shapes. Make some of them rounded into a pile and leave some just curved or even straight.
Refrigerate them for about 15 minutes then bake them in a preheated 350 degree oven for 7-9 minutes.
Allow them to cool completely then squeeze some sparkle gel on each cookie and brush it on with a pastry brush, being sure to fill in all the cracks and crevices.
Here is the difference the gel makes in the look of the cookies. If you prefer the non-mucusy look then you can just skip it all together.
