This is my first time baking cookies. I decided to make some just to  impress my loved ones last valentine’s day hehe.  I personally chose heart shaped cookie cutters because they looked cute!  If you have spare time of making these, you should try it!


  1. 5 cups of all purpose flour
  2. 2 cups of refined sugar
  3. 4 eggs
  4. 2 cups of softened butter
  5. 2 teaspoon of baking powder
  6. 1 teaspoon of salt
  7. 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Here’s a quick video overview of my first cookie-baking experience. Scroll down for complete step by step tutorial 🙂

After baking, I used my DIY cookie boxes  as a gift wrap. I like utilizing everything that I made. It makes me feel fulfilled, gives a personal touch on my gift and it’s a great way to save money! I provided a link for that right here if you want to try ’em. 🙂

Do you have any other version of sugar cookie recipe? I would love to hear about them! 🙂

Much Love, J
