Giant V-day Candy Coated Sugar Cookies
Friday, February 14, 2014 | Time: 7:38 AM

Isn't this the one day a year that's really about letting go and eating candy?
Sure, love and all that too. My man loves candy, so I made him a super sweet treat this Valentine's Day.

Sugar Cookie Recipe
Makes about a dozen small cookies or four giant cookies

4 oz Butter (unsalted)
5 oz Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Egg
1 oz Milk
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
10 oz Cake Flour
1/4 oz Baking Powder

Have all ingredients together at room temperature before starting.
Place the butter, sugar and salt in a bowl and cream till light and fluffy.
Add eggs, milk and vanilla, blend to combine.
Sift in flour and baking powder, until just combined. Be gentle, don't over mix it.
Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes until firm to the touch, but not golden brown. These sugar cookies are meant to be light in color and soft.
Cool completely before you frost!

I used store bought Funfetti Aqua Blue Vanilla frosting (with little candy fishy sprinkles) and sprinkled it with Skittles desserts and Jolly Rancher sour fruit bites  (both candies I found at the check-out line). 
Cut out with a heart-shaped cookie cutter. I found this Wilton Set that has a giant heart shaped one, plus a design (I just used the heart one) but any cookie cutter will do. I also love this 8-bit one.

Tip: Roll out your dough and lay it on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Then cut your shapes out and just remove the excess. That way you don't mess up your pretty shapes by moving them to the sheet.
