These Valentine’s heart-shaped sugar cookies by Rosanna Pansino on YouTube replicate the idea of a traditional sweethearts candy. This is a quick and easy recipe to make if you need a last-minute idea or if you’re celebrating Galentine’s Day, this would be fun to decorate and make with your girlfriends. I hate the hard candy with the conversations on them, but this is a perfect way to recreate them to something more delicious. It’s a modern twist to the candy because you can write any type of sayings on your cookies. They’re customizable and a great way to make this a special gift to someone.



Vanilla Almond Sugar Cookies:

  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 1-1/2 Cups and 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Almond Meal
  • 1-1/2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Grated Nutmeg
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Almond Extract
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Sticks Salted Butter

Royal Icing:

  • 5 Egg Whites
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Cups Powdered Sugar

First, make the sugar cookie dough by beating the butter and sugar together. Add the eggs one at a time then add the vanilla and almond extracts. In a separate bowl, whisk the dry ingredients then add them to the other bowl and mix until combined. Wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1- 24 hours. I couldn’t find her original recipe on how to make the sugar cookies, but you can refer to this blog post.

Next, once the cookies are ready, decorate them and ice the cookies. Make the outline with the homemade icing, and let it sit for about 5 minutes to harden before filling it in. Then, let it dry before adding any texts.
