Let's start with a recipe for soft, fluffy, delicious, sugar cookies in the shape of hearts!
1/2 cup butter
1 3/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tablespoon baking powder
5 cups flour
2 c. sour cream (I used low-fat)
2 tsp. vanilla
Cream butter, sugar and eggs together. Add dry ingredients. Add sour cream and vanilla. Mix well. Place in refrigerator for at least an hour. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut in desired shapes. Bake 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes. Let cool and frost with your favorite frosting.
I offered the frosted, morsels of goodness to my 18 year old. He asked, suspiciously, "Did you put anything healthy in 'em?" I assured him there was nothing healthy and he eagerly ate some.
Speaking of healthy and heart.
