Ingredients

Cookie Dough

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 prepackaged cookie dough mix, such as package Krusteaz Sugar Cookie Mix
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (plus additional flour for rolling out cookie dough)

Cookie Icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Red food coloring

Directions

Cookie Dough

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

 In medium bowl, stir together butter, egg, cookie mix and ½ cup flour until dough forms, hand kneading if necessary. Place dough on lightly floured surface; roll to ¼-inch thickness. Cut dough using a floured heart-shaped cookie cutter. Place 1-inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-11 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Cool thoroughly before icing and decorating cookies.

 

Cookie Icing
