Valentine’s Day Sugar Cookies

With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought I’d whip up an easy sugar cookie to share with you guys.  The main reason why I love these cookies is because they don’t require rolling and cutting like many sugar cookies.  Oh, they’re delicious too.  That’s another reason why I like them.

Easy sugar cookies!

If you make these you’re more than welcome to add some food coloring to the icing to jazz things up a bit.  You can also eat half of the icing out of the bowl.  I don’t care what you do, and I’m not here to judge.

Easy Valentine's Day sugar cookies! No rolling and cutting necessary!

As always, here’s a printable 4×6 recipe card.  Click on the image of the card to download it.

Happy baking, friends!

Stalk away!


  1. These look amazing! Of course I would prefer it if you would just bake them and ship them to my home address. As you might remember, I don’t have vanilla…

  2. You are the queen of beautiful baking. Those cookies are gorgeous! And how awesome that you don’t have to roll them out–that is the main reason I never make sugar cookies. Too much work!

  4. Love this easy recipe! Do you have to keep them refrigerated, or can they sit out?

  5. I often struggle to get a good consistency with the icing (mine ends up being so runny). To get the texture you achieved in the photos you posted – how long are you beating the sugar for?

  6. Mmmmm…. cookies! These look delicious!

  14. these look great. quick question about your icing, do you find it hardens or does it remain buttercream consistency rather than that of a straight up water/milk & sugar icing would? thanks!

    These look so beautiful – perfection. Just made them and mine don’t look even close. Do you take the cookies out when they are really soft? Mine are crispy. Do u pipe on icing or use a spatula?

    • I took mine out when they were still soft but light brown on the bottom. I have to admit, I watched these closely because I didn’t want them to be too crispy. They hardened a little bit after cooling but after sitting overnight in an airtight container with the icing on them, they softened up. I piped the icing on and then smoothed it out with an angled spatula.

  16. My cookie dough is a little sticky.. Did you just bake them sticky, or should I add more flour?
