For the Cookies:

  • 1 cup of Butter – softened
  • 1 cup of Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoons of Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoons cake batter flavoring
  • 2 1/2 cups of Flour
  • 1 teaspoon of Salt

For the Icing:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk or water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pink and aqua gel food coloring
  • White royal icing or frosting for polka dots


For the Cookies:

  1. Prepare Dough: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract (if using) until well combined.
  2. Add Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the flour and salt to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms. Divide the dough into two equal portions, shape each into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour until firm.
  3. Roll Out Dough: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). On a lightly floured surface, roll out one disc of dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Use heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut out cookies and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  4. Bake: Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the Icing:

  1. Prepare Icing: In a medium bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk or water, and vanilla extract until smooth. Divide the icing into two bowls.
  2. Color Icing: Add pink gel food coloring to one bowl of icing and aqua gel food coloring to the other bowl. Stir until the desired shades are reached.
  3. Decorate Cookies: Once the cookies are completely cooled, use a small offset spatula or spoon to spread a thin layer of pink or aqua icing onto each cookie. Allow the icing to set slightly.
  4. Add Polka Dots: Use white royal icing or frosting to pipe small polka dots onto the pink and aqua icing. You can use a piping bag fitted with a small round tip or simply snip a small corner off a plastic bag to pipe the dots.
  5. Let Set: Let the icing set completely before serving or packaging the cookies.
  6. Serve: Serve these delightful Pink & Aqua Heart Cookies as a sweet treat for Valentine’s Day, baby showers, or any special occasion.


  • Make sure the cookies are completely cooled before icing to prevent the icing from melting.
  • If you don’t have gel food coloring, you can use liquid food coloring, but you may need to adjust the amount to achieve the desired color intensity.
  • Experiment with different sizes of heart-shaped cookie cutters for variety.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.

These homemade Pink & Aqua Heart Cookies with white polka dots are sure to bring a smile to your face and joy to your taste buds. Enjoy sharing them with your loved ones and celebrating special moments together!
