Smooth Buttery Red Velvet Valentine Cookies.
Nothing says ‘I Love You’ more than something ‘Homemade with Love’.
These cookies look fantastic and they really are quite simple to make. I finished them off by making a little box to present them in.
You can find the video on how to make the box Here

- Into the bowl of a stand mixer, sieve the flour. Add the powdered sugar and sieve that through too. Finally sieve the cocoa into the bowl.
Add the softened butter. Carefully pour in the food colour. Pour in the vinegar.
Mix together using the beater attachment until you have a nice cookie dough.
Remove from the bowl and place in the fridge to chill so the dough is easier to handle.
- Once chilled remove from the fridge and place onto a floured surface. Using a rolling roll the dough out until it is about 1/4 inch / 1/2 cm thick. Use a 3 inch / 7.5 cm heart shaped cookie cutter and cut out about 12 cookies. Then using a 1.5inch / 4cm heart cookie cutter, cut out the middle of the big hearts.
- Pre heat the oven to 180F / 350C. Carefully lift the cookies onto a cookie tray lined with waxed paper.
Place the small hearts onto the tray too. Place in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes until cooked.
Remove from the oven and place onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
- Make up some royal icing that is loose enough to flood a cookie. Check out my royal Icing Recipe.
Divide the icing into two and colour one half with a red food colour.
Place the red icing into a piping bag (with a plain nozzle if you have one) and carefully draw a line around the outside edge of the cookie. Now do the same along the inside edge.
Allow to dry for a few minutes.
- Then place the white icing into a piping bag with a slightly larger nozzle. Flood fill the cookie with the white icing.
Whilst the white icing is still wet, pipe little red dots around the centre of the heart. Use a cocktail stick or scribe to drag through the centre of each dot to draw them out to a sort of heart shape.
- Decorate the little hearts also.
- Allow to dry completely before you place them into the box.
