Directions

  1. In large bowl, with electric mixer at medium speed, beat 1 cup butter or margarine with 1/2 cup sugar, almond extract, and food coloring until light and fluffy. With wooden spoon, stir in 2 1/2 cups flour until smooth and well combined. Divide dough into 2 parts. Refrigerate, covered, 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  3. On lightly sugared surface, roll out dough, one part at a time, about 1/4- inch thick. Using heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out cookies. Place, one inch apart, on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 20 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack. Frost when cool.
  4. To Make Frosting: Cook 5 Tablespoons flour and milk until thick, stirring constantly. Let cool. Cream together 1 cup sugar, 1 cup butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add flour/milk mixture. Beat until consistency to spread. When finished it looks like whipped cream. Spread on cookies.

Valentine cookies that were a hit. I used vanilla flavouring and everyone loved it. Left out the red food colouring.

Awesome! I halved the recipe and did not do the pink heart thing :) Also subbed vanilla for almond flavoring. Cookie alone is great, nice light texture and not too sweet; frosting is wonderful. I think I will make this frosting for other cookies in the future; it has such a nice smooth texture, pretty creamy color, no funky powdered sugar taste. Definitely give these a try!

Flavor was only okay, I'd say. Frosting was way better by itself so I used it as a drizzle for a cake I made the other day and it tasted amazing. I think I might try these again some day but not any time soon.
