Stamped Conversation Heart Sugar Cookies for Valentine’s Day!

Stamped Valentine's Day Sugar Cookies from www.laurenslatest.com So, you know what just crept up on me? This blasted cold I have. Me and my baby got this bug somehow that we can’t seem to shake. So far it’s just coughing and a whole lot of boogers. {I know you were dying to know that.} It always gets worse at night and I don’t want to wake up in the morning because I feel like death, but 10 am- 6 pm I feel pretty good {besides getting sucker punched from the inside}.

You know what else crept up on me? My daughter’s 4th birthday.

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR. In 5 days, my child will have been on this earth 4 whole years. Jigga-what? Day-to-day time stands still, but looking back over it all it seems like it zoomed by. *tear* My baby is all grown up! Also…shout out to my husband for 1. getting me pregnant {because apparently its harder than it looks} 2. donating those good looking genes and 3. keeping her alive and well. Good job honey. We did it! And, lucky for you we get to do it all again.

Anyways, those last few paragraphs had nothing to do with the recipe today. I know, it’s shocking that I can ramble on paragraph after paragraph about other things besides food. Pretty sure it’s a gift I’ve been given. OR, I have no filter and I write whatever pops into my head. One of the two.

But that’s neither here nor there….ANYWAYS…today I’m posting a recipe about these cute little Valentine’s Day cookies that I stamped! Aren’t they the cutest ever? I just whipped up a batch of Bridget’s famous sugar cookie dough, rolled it out, cut out my hearts and stamped away. I posted a video on Vine of the process and got lots of responses as to where I got my letter stamps. I actually found them a few months back at a craft store on sale for $1. Hey big spender. I’m sure you could find some very similar ones nearby or online. Just wash them well before use.

After you have your cookies ready, freeze them 10 minutes and then pop them in the oven. This will help them keep their letter indents in tact. The first batch I didn’t leave in long enough but the second one was perfect! And, if you’re REALLY worried about them not turning out, just add an extra tablespoon or two of flour. That should do the trick.

Oh, and make sure you get some awesome conversation heart phrases to stamp on your cookies. You can always make up your own, but the real phrases seriously crack me up. Nothing says I love you more than:

-time 2 dance
-1 on 1
-high five
-hold hands
-ask me
-wink wink
-boogie
-jump 4 me

Yes, these are REAL phrases taken from the candies themselves. QUALITY candy, folks. LOL! :)

Here’s how you make these cookies:

IMG_0004 Start by making the dough. It’s pretty basic and straightforward. I added a little extra flour to make sure my letters kept their shape! As you can see, it’s pretty crumbly. Just work it together with your hands and it should come together nicely.

IMG_0009 Once you have your dough together, flour a clean work surface and roll that dough out.

IMG_0012 Now grab some free child labor and get cracking! We cut out small, medium and large hearts. IMG_0013 I was on small heart duty and these little hands took care of the medium and large hearts. After ruining the first 4, she got the hang of it. Read: learned to be gentle.

IMG_0016 Plop your cookie dough hearts onto a baking sheet and keep cutting until you’ve got a full tray.

IMG_0026 Now comes the fun part! Figure out what ridiculous sayings you want to stamp and have at it! As you can see, these little letters are pretty itty bitty. Probably why they were only $1…on clearance. IMG_0038 Stamping these words turned into a great letter lesson for my toddler, believe it or not. Wow. That was such a mom thing to say.

IMG_0041 8-10 minutes later, you’ve got yourself come cute little cookies!

Stamped Conversation Heart Sugar Cookies

A cute and sweet treat for Valentine's Day!

Yield: 3 dozen small heart cookies Prep Time: 45 min Cook Time: 8-10 min Total Time: 55 min

Ingredients:

1 c sugar
1 cup cold butter, cut into cubes
1 large egg
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups + 2 tablespoons unbleached, all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixer, stir butter and sugar together until blended. Stir in egg and vanilla. Scrape sides of bowl and mix again. Slowly stir in flour and baking powder until just incorporated. Dough will be crumbly so you'll have to work it together with your hands. Shouldn't take too much effort. Roll dough out to be 1/4-3/8 inch thick on well floured work surface. Cut into heart shapes and transfer to baking sheet. Stamp phrases onto cookies and freeze 10 minutes. Immediately transfer to oven and bake 8-10 minutes. The thicker the cookie, the longer the baking time. Cool 3 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack. Serve at room temperature. Store any extra cookies in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

  16. I am in awe with this sugar cookie recipe, I have been trading in/out different extracts (lemon, orange blossom, almond) and the consistence of the dough is always the same just a little flavor difference. The stamp idea is fantastic, I will give it a try! Thank you for finally giving me a reason to like sugar cookies!
