These were really good! Oh and of course I had to make a few heart rolls. I made them using my heart cookie cutters. The other ones I twisted like a breadstick and and folded them into hearts.

Very soft sugar cookies!
So I don’t know about you but I always have the hardest time with sugar cookies. They always taste like flour! blah! So this year I decided to try a new recipe and it’s probably the best one I’ve found so far. The only thing I didn’t have was the lemon extract, but I bet it would only make them taste sweeter! :)
