Love Decoration Cookie

It is warm again during the day but freezing at night with a cold wind. Brrrrr...

This is another Valentine's day recipe ;)
I decorated a heart shaped cookie with a 3D LOVE message.

Love Decoration Cookie

Difficulty: Easy

Number of servings: 3-4 10 cm (4 inches) heart shaped cookies

60g (2.1oz.) butter (softened)
30g (1oz.) sugar
1 egg yolk
* 95g (3.3oz.) all-purpose flour
* 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
pink chocolate pen or pink colored icing
sprinkles of your choice

1. Beat butter and sugar until creamy, add egg yolk and mix well.

2. Sift A in 1. and mix well.

3. Press and shape dough into one and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour to chill.

4. Preheat oven to 350F (180C). On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 0.5 cm (0.2 inch) thickness. Cut with a 4-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter dipped in flour. Also cut out alphabets (LOVE) freehand or with alphabet cookie cutters. Place on a greased cookie sheet about an inch apart.

5. Bake at 350F (180C) for 15-20 minutes. Cool the cookies on the sheet and attach sprinkles with chocolate pen or colored icing.

My original recipe in Japanese is here.

I had sake with my friend tonight. I drank it after a long time, so I was dizzy for few hours... but I am okay now! Wow it is 2AM already!!! I think I should go to bed.
