How To Make These Valentines Heart Cookies 

I’ll share how to make this valentine cookies recipe in two steps. I hope you have fun making these! It’s super easy! 

Enjoy!

Stacked Heart Valentines Day Cookies

Step One: Making Shortbread

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer, combine the softened butter.

Whip until creamy, 2-3 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract and egg, continue to mix.

Sift in the 3 cups of flour and baking powder.

The mixture will be stiff so use your hands to finish mixing, if needed.

Divide the dough into 3-4 smaller batches. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out onto a lightly floured surface to about 1/4″ thick.

Use the heart cookie cutters to cut the same number of hearts in each size.

Place the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2″ a part.

The cookies are now ready to go in the oven.

Set a timer for 3-4 minutes and remove the cookie sheet from the oven and remove the smallest stars from the cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet back into the oven.

Set the timer for another 2 minutes and then remove the medium size stars.

Place the cookie sheet back into the oven for the large stars to finish baking another 2-3 minutes.

Let the cookies cool completely.

Step Two: Making The Decorated Valentines Cookies

Attach the frosting tip to the disposable piping bag and fill with strawberry frosting.

Gently frost the edges of the bottom of a medium heart-shaped cookie.
