Hello everyone!!! Are you ready for February? Can you believe we are actually talking about February? WOW! So are you starting to think of a fun & cute little treat you can make for Valentine’s Day? I have just the thing…Red Hot Kisses & Hugs Cookies. These are so easy with a classic shortbread but then cut into x’s & o’s & sprinkled with red hots – well that makes them the perfect Valentine treat.
Do you love shortbread cookies? Oh I sure love them. I had them on my list of things to make all though the holiday season – I never had a chance to make them. So having them mixed with red hots for Valentine’s Day pretty much makes up for that- don’t you think?!
You could make these 2 – ways. Either mix the red hots into the dough & then they are inside the cookie – which I did here. Or you can place them in the top of the cookie once it’s done baking but still hot. Because I chose to mix in- it made the red hots melt & some of them oozed out onto the pan. This wasn’t all bad. It made the cinnamon flavor of the red hots disburse through the cookie more. But if you want a more uniform look- add them immediately after removing from the oven. That’s probably what I will do with these on future batches.
