Sugar heart cookies

Sprinkle lovers raise your hands!
We had a baking night session this weekend where I was trying to cook with Nico and I failed again.
This little one has zero patience and just-couldn’t-wait to finish.
If you are a sugar cookie sucker and a Momofuku fan, these cookies will bake up like a dream for you. 

Christina Tosi presents this recipe in her new book Milk bar life as a “huge cookie” and a lot thicker than the ones we baked.
We adjusted it from the original squares to hearts and included some new ingredients as well, making our version of these cookies.

You’ll need

2 cups of sugar  (used 1 cup of granulated sugar and 1 cup of brown sugar)

2 sticks of butter, unsalted

2 eggs (added 1 extra!)

1/2 cup of Olive oil

1 1/2 tsp of mexican vanilla extract (the best!)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

Decorate with sprinkles (added chocolate, milk chocolate chips, green and red sprinkles)

Mix

The butter, sugar, eggs, oil, vanilla extract in a mixer until all ingredients are combined, about 4 minutes. Add flour, baking soda and a bit of salt at the end and mix well. 

Bake

Make sure to add lots and lots of sprinkles and bake for 20 minutes at 350F (add 3 to 4 more minutes if you want them firm)

enjoy!

    These look delicious. I have made my own vanilla before and it was amazing but now I have to try the Mexican vanilla extract. Thanks for the recipe!
