Notes on Ingredients

The key to making these cookies lies in using high-quality ingredients. The combination of butter and confectioners’ sugar creates a smooth, creamy base. Vanilla extract adds a lovely aroma, while a hint of almond extract can elevate the flavor. All-purpose flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar provide the perfect structure and texture for these cookies.

How to Make Easy Valentine Sandwich Cookies

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup of butter and 1 ½ cups of confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Beat in 1 large egg, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and ½ teaspoon of almond extract (optional).
  3. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 ½ cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar.
  4. Mix Dough: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and beat until just combined. Divide the dough into thirds and shape each portion into a ball.
  5. Roll and Cut: On a lightly floured surface, roll out one portion of dough to 1/4-inch thickness. For each sandwich cookie, cut out two 3-inch hearts. Use a 1 1/2-inch cutter to cut out the center of one of the hearts. Place the cutout pieces 1 to 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  6. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 7 to 8 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool completely on wire racks.
  7. Assemble Sandwich Cookies: 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.
