Happy Valentine’s Day & Happy Discounted Candy Day!
For Valentine’s Day this year, Ward and I decided to stay home and make homemade ahi tuna & octopus bowls. Our rice cooker broke (scratch that – the rice cooker we got for free and tried using for the first time, broke last night). Even though the rice was more like porridge because of this, the bowls and our Valentine’s Day was pretty perfect 🙂
The night before, I decided to bake for the holiday and I decided on cookies. As we all know, cookies are rough for me and these were no different but they were so, so good.
I started by mixing together the dry ingredients and in a separate bowl, I mixed the sugar and butter.
Once the butter and sugar were combined, I added the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl and beat them all together until just combined.
I rolled the dough into balls of about 2 tablespoons and rolled them in sugar before placing them on the silpat.
Once they were all on the silpat, I used a glass to flatten them out.
I put the cookies in the oven and made the frosting while I waited. The frosting was easy and just included mixing together butter, heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and pink food coloring.
When the cookies were ready I let them cool for 10 minutes before frosting. As usual, my cookies were super flat. Ugh!
I frosted them anyway, and then let them sit. For some of them, I put sprinkles on top but I left the majority unsprinkled.
They didn’t look too pretty but they were super, super yummy and I will definitely try to make these again! Maybe next time they won’t be so flat!
