Vanilla Dipped Sugar Cookie Heart's

OK I promise this will be the last Valentine recipe I will be adding. I thought these cookies turned out so cute that I had to post them. I had some left over vanilla coating and I still needed a goodie or two to give away to teachers and friends.
 

 I made these cute sugar cookie cut outs and then dipped them in melted vanilla. I also tinted some of them pastel pink and then added sprinkles. I would normally use my homemade sugar cookie recipe, but Kroger had Betty Crocker cookie pouches on sale for $2.00. 

I had two .40/1 coupons so doubled that made each pouch only $1.20 you can beat that. These cookies were so easy to make and look so pretty in a box or heart shaped basket lined with tissue paper. If you need a last minute cookie or gift idea this would be perfect.





Vanilla Dipped Sugar Cookie Hearts

2 - pouches Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix, prepared according to packet directions for rolled cooked or use a favorite homemade sugar cookie recipe
12 0z - vanilla candy coating or vanilla almond bark
valentine sprinkles of your choice

icing paste for color tinting (pink or red)

Prepare sugar cookie mix according to package directions. Use directions for sugar cut out's. Cut cookies using a heart shaped cookie cutter.

Place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray and bake as directed, let cool completely. Melt the vanilla coating for about 5 minutes using the defrost setting on your microwave. 

I melt mine in 2 minutes intervals then stir and put back in the microwave until fully melted and creamy. 

Dip one end of the cookie in candy coating, add sprinkles and place on waxed paper until dry. It is as easy as that. 

Recipe yields about 2 1/2 dozen cookies

I'm glad you're posting valentine's treats. I can live vicariously. I'm hoping I'll be off the couch and over this flu, but I'm afraid it just isn't going to happen :-( Not in time for Valentines anyway.
