Happy Friday! Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and as with most holidays I always like having a few goodies on hand to celebrate with. One thing that I always think of when it comes to this heart-crazed holiday are candy conversation hearts, so when I saw these on Pinterest I just had to share them with you! These conversation heart cookies were made with cookie cutters from Williams-Sonoma, but sadly they don’t have them anymore. So to help you out I found a similar option on etsy (Vintage Hallmark Cookie Cutters) that can help you make similar cookies or you can just use a plain heart cookie cutter and then ice on the sayings later. I hope you enjoy these

Super Soft Sugar Cookies Recipe (makes 2 dozen)

Ingredients
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups + 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 eggs
8 ounces sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
4 teaspoons baking powder
approximately 4 1/2 cups flour
food coloring

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together butter and sugar. Add remaining wet ingredients; eggs, sour cream & vanilla. In a separate medium bowl combine salt, baking soda & baking powder. Slowly mix into wet ingredients until combined. Finally, add flour slowly, adding more or less if needed. If you decide to color your cookie dough you would add that before you refrigerate.

Let the dough chill for at least an hour, although longer is preferable. (I suggest sticking it in the freezer for 5 minutes before rolling out) Roll out dough on a well floured surfaced and cut into shapes. Bake for 8-10 minutes, depending on size.
**Baking Tip: Roll the dough at least 1/4 inch thick and don't overbake.**

I also found this amazing Surprise Heart Cupcakes recipe from LaurenConrad.com. They are pretty easy to make and would look adorable with the Cupid's Arrow Cupcake Topper craft that I shared with you yesterday. The arrow would be going right through the heart! 
What is your favorite Valentine's Day treat that you like to make?
