Be Mine, Will You?

Being Valentine's Day, I whipped up a little something for the hubby. Zach had gotten these sweet Star Wars cookie cutters for Christmas from his pops. (Find them here) I finally got a chance to break them out this weekend for a special Valentine's treat.

I also made some classic Valentine's hearts too!
Here's my recipe for Homemade Sugar Cookies:
2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups softened butter
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 16 ounce container of vanilla frosting
(still working on the homemade frosting)

Combine butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla.

Stir in flour, baking powder, salt. Cover and chill for an hour or so (or overnight).

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
On clean surface, sprinkle flour to prevent sticking. 
Use rolling pin to flatten dough to about 1/4 inch.
Get cookie cutting!

Bake 6-8 minutes.

And voila!

Let cool completely.

Apply frosting (I added red food coloring to the frosting to make pretty pink)

Have fun decorating!

Hubby is happy!

Happy Valentine's Day!
