Cupid Bites
Author: Lori
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter (chilled)
  • 4 tablespoonscolored sprinkles (I used red and white jimmies)
  • 1-2 tablespoons water
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together flour and sugar. Use a pastry blender to cut in butter until you have fine crumbs.
  3. Begin to form your mixture into a ball. You may or may no need to add a little water to get the ball to form and prevent the mixture from cracking. (Don't give up here!) Add a little at a time until the mixture holds together as a ball. Use your hands if you need to!
  4. Place your dough ball onto an ungreased cookie sheet. I like to roll (with a rolling pin)and pat my dough into a rectangle. Hand patting helps me to keep the edges from cracking. The size is around 8" x 8"
  5. Cut into ½" squares and separate the squares on the cookie sheet. I added in a few hearts for fun and used the scraps to make additional bites.
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the bottoms begin to brown.
  7. Transfer to wax paper on a wire rack to cool.
Valentine's Day Printable Bag Topper
  1. To print the bag topper, you will need adobe acrobat.
  2. Print the Happy Valentine's Day cards and make sure you uncheck the "fit to page" or "scale to fit" option in your print dialogue box. If you print at original size, the tags measure 3.5" wide x 4" tall. You can print four tags on one page.
  3. Once the bites are cooled, place them into treat bags. I always fold over my bags and staple them shut before adding the top tag.
  4. Cut and fold the bag toppers and affix to the bag with double stick tape on each side.
  5. Share the love!
Notes
You can store these tasty treats in an airtight container for 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
Makes 120-150 bites. I was able to fill 8 bags. Or you can use the recipe to fill about a dozen cupcake cups and serve.
