Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking powder, and salt; beat until combined. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and food coloring until combined. (Use 1/8 tsp. for peach, 1/4 tsp, for pink, or more as desired.) Beat in as much of the flour as you; stir in remaining flour. Divide dough in half; wrap each half in plastic wrap. Chill 30 to 60 minutes or until easy to handle.

  • On a lightly floured surface roll a dough half out to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a 2 1/4- to 3 1/4-inch heart-shape cutter, cut out cookies. Arrange 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Use small stamps to press words into cutouts as desired. Reroll and repeat with scraps. Bake 7 minutes or until edges are firm. Remove; cool on a wire rack. Repeat with other dough half.
