Valentine's-special Heart cookies
|Naario 9-in-1 flour mix- 2 3/4 cups|
|Baking powder- 1/2 tsp.|
|Naario Himalayan Pink Salt- 1/4 tsp.|
|Unsalted butter, at room temp- 1 cup|
|Naario Jaggery powder- 3/4 cups|
Vanilla extract- 1 1/2 tsp
Method for Preparation:
Step 1- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Step 2- In another large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg and then vanilla.
Step 3- Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually add flour mixture, mixing just until incorporated.
Step 4- Shape dough into 2 disks and roll each between 2 sheets of waxed paper to 1/8 inch thick. Chill until firm, 30 minutes in refrigerator or 15 minutes in freezer
Step 5- Heat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Using floured cookie cutters, cut out cookies. Place on prepared sheets. Reroll, chill and cut scraps.
Step 6- Bake, rotating positions of baking sheets halfway through, until cookies are light golden brown around edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on sheets 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
Step 7- Ice cookies with royal icing and let set. When ready to decorate, combine luster dust with a touch of vodka and use a paint brush to “paint” on stripes.
