I made these for my husband for Valentines Day. They were awesome!
2 drops almond flavored oil (If making cinnamon flavored icing eliminate the almond flavor from the cookie recipe.)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter or shortening (I used stick butter)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup milk
3 cups flour
Combine all dry ingredients. Mix. In a separate bowl combine all liquid ingredients. Mix. Mix dry and liquid ingredients. I love to make thick cookies so I double my recipe. Bake 375 for 10-12 minutes.
Add icing when the cookies have cooled.
1 cup confectioners sugar
2 tbsp milk (or until desired thickness)
Food Coloring (optional)
1 drop almond or cinnamon oil for flavor (also optional)
**Tip** The cinnamon flavored icing had a real similar taste to the Brock’s jelly cinnamon hearts that can only be found for Valentines day. They were amazing!
