Scrumptious valentines sandwich cookies with a gentle chocolate cookie, silky clean frosting with sprinkles, good for Valentine’s Day!

Once I requested just lately for valentines baking inspiration I had so many requests for a cute love themed cookie, and there it’s…. I’ve seen these type of cookies all over and I couldn’t resist having a go as they’re simply so lovely!

Valentines

Valentines is a kind of occasions of the 12 months the place you possibly can actually have with the adorning of your bakes and treats that you simply make, and I really like that. All the whites, pinks and reds you possibly can think about – it’s simply so cute. 

Final 12 months I posted just a few cute recipes similar to my large valentines cookie, my valentines deal with field and my valentines cheesecake recipe and I like them nonetheless… however this 12 months?! I wished to do an excellent cute bake that’s versatile sufficient to make use of all year long in addition to Valentines, but additionally an excellent straightforward bake for a liked one. 

Cookies

For the cookies, I wished to make a cookie that was gentle like a shortbread blended with a sugar cookie nearly, however I wished to have a chocolate biscuit. I really like the flavour of the chocolate cookies, blended with the truth that the distinction of color to the ornament is so good. 

The cookie is barely richer in comparison with a daily shortbread as a result of it makes use of an egg to make a pleasant clean dough, making it tremendous straightforward to work with. It additionally has somewhat splash of vanilla within the cookie dough for a scrumptious flavour.

When making the cookies I discovered it tremendous essential to roll out the dough onto a flippantly floured floor, in any other case they’ll undoubtedly stick, after which flippantly dunk my coronary heart formed cutter right into a pot of flour as properly every time. I additionally discovered that you simply do have to relax these cookies in any other case the dough can puff up barely. 

The cookies make an incredible plain chocolate base cookie for different ornament concepts you might have as properly. 

Filling

For the filling, I simply wished to do a straightforward fundamental buttercream frosting in order that it may be colored no matter color you need, I clearly went for pink, after which it’s also sturdy sufficient. The frosting is designed to stay the 2 biscuits collectively, and likewise present sufficient of a glue for the sprinkles that you simply adorn with. 

When making an American model buttercream frosting, you need to just remember to use a block butter, as a baking unfold or margarine will likely be too gentle. I take advantage of common icing sugar, after which color with a vivid pink colouring that solely wants 1-2 drops to color the entire batch of frosting. 

Clearly, you possibly can change it up and use a crimson color, or if you’re making these for an additional event… no matter color you fancy. 

Ornament

So when you might have your cooled cookies and made your frosting, you possibly can have enjoyable adorning! I didn’t use a piping tip once I made these as I knew I used to be going to squidge sprinkles onto the edges so I simply reduce the tip off a piping bag and piped the frosting tremendous near the sting of the biscuit. 

As soon as piped, I sandwiched the cookie with one other cookie after which dunked all sides of the cookie right into a bowl of tremendous vivid valentines sprinkles. You nearly need the frosting to stay out barely after you have sandwiched the cookies collectively as that is what your sprinkles will follow.
