Got a Galentine’s Party coming up? Maybe you need a treat for your kiddos on Valentine’s Day? Or perhaps…there is a chance you just want to devour some red velvet goodness while cozied up to watch the drama of The Bachelorette? Can’t say I have done the latter…or maybe I have. In ANY case, today I’m sharing a super, easy cookie recipe that is fitting for any of the above occasions -Dusted Red Velvet Heart Cookies. To make these really cute, all you need is a small heart cookie cutter. Don’t have one or don’t want to buy one? Good news -you can still make these cookies in regular form -which in fact makes them even easier. The red color is enough to make them look festive for any Valentine’s gathering or even a Christmas Cookie Exchange. Let’s be real though, you can use red velvet for any point in the year!

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix everything except the powdered sugar together in a mixing bowl.
  3. Dump powdered sugar into a smaller bowl.
  4. Form small balls out of your dough that you have mixed together (see picture below for approximate size).
  5. Drop balls into the small bowl of powdered sugar and roll around until coated. *This is why I mentioned in the ingredients that the amount of powdered sugar is flexible here; add as much, or as little as you want.
  6. Line up on a cookie sheet. I sprayed mine with olive oil cooking spray.
  7. Put in oven for 8 minutes and then pull out and flatten the cookies with a spatula. They will be a little puffy -flattening them makes it easier to use the cookie cutter. *If you are not going to be using a cookie cutter, skip this part and just place in the oven for a full 9-10 minutes.
  8. Assuming you are using a cookie cutter, place the cookie sheet back into the oven for another 1-2 minutes once you have flattened your cookies.
  9. Ideally when you remove the cookies from the oven, you have parchment paper to put them on. I was out so I improvised and used the bottom side of a non-stick baking dish upside down. You need to put them on something where the cookies aren’t going to stick.
  10. Let the cookies sit for a few minutes to cool and then push your cookie cutter down right in the middle of the cookie. Slowly remove the cookie cutter from the cookie and you will now have the outline of a heart cookie and an extra small heart cookie (or another shape if you decided to branch out).
  11. Let cool on a baking sheet and devour!
