Iced Cupid's Cup Sugar Cookie Hearts

Adagio Teas TeaChef Level 2

Tea-flecked sugar cookies for a tea-time treat.

2 h 30 m 20

Ingredients

  • 2-3/4 C flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 3/4 C butter, softened
  • 1 C granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • zest from 1 organic lemon
  • 1 T Cupid's Cup (or use any other tea blend you wish)
  • Also needed: heart shaped cookie cutters
  • Royal Icing
  • 1 egg whites, or more to thin icing
  • 2 C organic powdered sugar, or more to thicken icing
  • 1 t pure lemon extract
  • water, as needed
  • food coloring, optional

Directions

1. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt, set aside in a bowl.

2. Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla extract, zest, and Cupid's Cup. Mix until well combined. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing completely. Once it comes together into a ball, wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill dough for at least 2 hours.

3. Roll out between two pieces of parchment paper. Shape them with your cutters, using flour to keep them from sticking.

4. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for 9-11 minutes, depending on size of cookies. Cool completely on wire racks. Make the royal icing while the cookies cool.

Royal Icing:

1. Beat the whites until stiff but not dry. Add sugar, lemon extract, and water, if needed. Beat for another minute. If the icing is too thick, add more egg whites; if it's too thin, add more sugar. Add food coloring, if using. I used a red made from beets. This icing may be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

2. Smooth the royal icing over cooled cookies. Let icing set completely before serving.
