Valentine's Day Cookies.
Serves: 18 Cookies
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 2 Tsp. of vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups brown sugar
  • ½ cup White sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2.5 Cups of flour
  • 2.5 Tsp. baking powder
  • ½ Tsp. of Sea Salt
  • About 1 cup total of toppings: ¼ cup of toffee bits, ¼ cup of crumbled pretzels, ¼ cup of dark chocolate morsels, and ¼ cup of M&Ms (could sub any of these for other candies or nuts)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together softened butter, vanilla, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth and fluffy, add in eggs and continue to beat until combined.
  3. Add in sifted flour, baking powder, and sea salt to the wet ingredients, and beat together until combined fully.
  4. Fold in your desired toppings to the dough; leave a few of the toppings to add on top of the dough before baking.
  5. Scoop out heaping tablespoon sized balls of the dough and roll into balls before dropping on the cookie sheet. Space the dough at least 2” apart on the cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes, checking to see that the edges are firm but the center is still a bit soft.
  7. Remove from oven and let them rest for ten minutes on the baking sheet to firm up before transferring to a wire cooling rack. Continue to bake in batches until all of the dough is used up. Serve warm alongside a cup of coffee with whipped cream and sprinkles.
