Holy Cow! It’s almost Valentine’s Day already!
Of course, I would love some diamonds, chocolates or beautiful roses for Valentine’s day or all the above. Am I right ladies?
Oh and of course, wined and dined is always nice.
*ahem…hopefully he’s reading this*
And if we make them pink, seriously, who can resist them?
And, suppose we top them off with tempting cream cheese frosting and sprinkles…ok, ok, I think you get the point!
It would be super, super awesome!!
So, Here’s the ‘copycat’ recipe! Happy Baking!
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar plus a 1/4 cup for dipping glass into
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 to 2 teaspoons red food coloring
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 ounces cream cheese
- 1/8 cup butter softened
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup powdered sugar sifted
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon almond milk or milk
- 1 tub of Cream Cheese Frosting
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray non-stick spray on cookie sheets.
Add butter, oil and sugar to a mixing bowl and mix until incorporated well.
Add the water and vanilla and continue mixing together. Add egg and beat in, then add in red food coloring and mix well.
Add the baking soda, cream of tartar, salt and flour wet mixture and mix until thoroughly incorporated.
Using a medium scoop, make balls of dough. Using a flat bottom glass that has been dipped in sugar, press down on cookies to get that crinkly edge.
Bake for 9-11 minutes. Don't overbake, you don't want cookies to be brown on bottoms.
Transfer to a wire rack to let cool.
Cream Cheese Frosting
Combine frosting ingredients together. Beat until thick and creamy.
(Warm up in microwave a smidge 10-15 seconds if you want a thinner glaze to spread on top, it will thicken up as it cools.)
Frost cookies and sprinkle with your decoration of choice.
