Ingredients

  • 1 ⅓ cup butter, softened

  • cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 teaspoon vanilla

  • ⅛ - ¼ teaspoon liquid red food coloring

  • 3 cup all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
