Valentine’s Day Cookie Recipe:

This is my grandma’s butter cookie recipe. It’s simple, not too sweet, just perfect for this kind of cookie!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 level cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla

1. Place all ingredients in mixing bowl and mix until a putt-like consistency is obtained.

2. Refrigerate for a couple of hours.

3. Roll dough out and cut with cookie cutters

4. Bake 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees, until edges are brown

5. Cool, then frost if desired. I used this recipe for icing!
