Valentine's Cookies with Marshmallow Fondant

Ok here are the beautiful cookies I just finished up for Miss V's Class Party.

For the Cookies
6 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups unsalted butter - room temp
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs - room temp
4 Tbsp milk
3 tsp vanilla
Combine flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
Cream sugar and butter, then add eggs milk and vanilla.
Slowly add the flour mixture and beat until combined.

Roll out on waxed paper about 1/4 inch thick and then put into the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes.  While chilling preheat oven to 350.

After chilling, cut out shapes and place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

I can not stress this enough, keep everything; pans, dough, cookie cutters cold.  This makes it so much easier.  Between batches I would chill the pans in the fridge and the cookie cutters in the freezer.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.  You do not want them to brown.  I did find that 10 minutes were perfect for this size cookie.

See the sheen on them, this was taken about 8 minutes of bake time.  These are NOT done.  Make sure to watch them and when the sheen is gone they are done.

 When one batch came out of the oven, I put them on the table and immediately placed a fondant heart on each cookie.  When that is done, go back and press GENTLY on the fondant.  It should have warmed up nicely and it when cooled it will be adhered to the cookie.

Again I made a batch of Marshmallow Fondant.  This time I flavored them with banana extract and tinted them different shades of pink.

Aren't they pretty???
