Valentine Sandwich Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 ½ cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract (Optional)
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar

Directions

Step 1: Preheat Pizzello oven to 350℉ (175℃).

Step 2: Cream butter and confectioners' sugar together in a large bowl. Beat in egg, vanilla, and almond extract.

Step 3: Whisk flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar together in a medium bowl. Add to butter mixture; beat until dough is just combined. Divide dough into thirds and shape each portion into a ball.

Step 4: Place one portion of dough on a lightly floured surface and roll out to 1/4-inch thickness. For each sandwich cookie, cut out two 3-inch hearts; cut out the center of one of the hearts with a 1 1/2-inch cutter. Place cutout pieces 1 to 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.

Step 5: Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 7 to 8 minutes. Cool completely on wire racks.

Step 6: Frost each solid 3-inch cookie with Pink Valentine Frosting and top with an open-centered cookie to form a sandwich. Frost the remaining small hearts and serve as separate cookies.
