Ingredients for Love Cookies Recipe

  • Refined flour (maida) 2 cups

  • Butter ¾ cup

  • Castor sugar (caster sugar) 1 cup

  • Egg 1

  • Vanilla essence ½ tablespoon

  • Salt ½ teaspoon

  • Baking soda ½ teaspoon

  • Cream of tartar ½ teaspoon

  • Powdered sugar 1 cup

  • Butter 3 tablespoons

  • Edible colours pink food colour

  • Colourful sprinklers as required

Method

Step 1

Cream together butter and castor sugar in a large mixing bowl till light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla essence and beat again.

Step 2

Sift together refined flour, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar into the mixture and mix. Then mix well with the hand blender till you get a soft dough. Transfer the dough into another bowl, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Preheat oven at 180°C.

Step 4

Dust the work top with a little dry flour, place the dough over it and roll out into a ¼ inch thick sheet. Take a heart shaped cookie cutter, dip it in a little dry flour, place it over the rolled out sheet and cut out cookies. Place these cookies on a baking tray.

Step 5

Knead the remaining dough, roll it out again into ½ inch thick sheet and cut out some more heart shaped cookies similarly. Place these on the baking tray too.

Step 6

Place the baking tray in the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.

Step 7

To make frosting, put sugar and butter in another mixing bowl and blend it with a hand blender till well blended and soft. Add a few drops of food colour and blend again.

Step 8

Bring the cookies out of the oven and let them cool down to room temperature.

Step 9

Put the frosting mixture into a piping bag. Once the cookies have cooled, snip off the pointed end of the piping bag and pipe the frosting on the underside of half the cookies. Cover each with one of the remaining cookies to make sandwiched cookies. Gently press them so that the frosting oozes out slightly from the sides of the sandwiches. Roll the sides in colourful sprinklers so that they are properly covered.

Step 10

Serve.
