Valentine’s Day “Love Cookies”

1/2 cup Earth Balance

3/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon ground golden flaxseed

3 tablespoons warm water

1 tsp. raspberry extract

5 drops red food coloring

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup confectioner’s sugar

1 tsp. light corn syrup

2-3 tbsp. soy or almond milk

heart-shaped candies for decorating

Whisk ground flaxseed & warm water, let sit for 3 minutes. Mix Earth Balance and sugar together. Add flaxseed mixture. Blend in extract and food coloring. Combine dry ingredients, and add until well blended. Shape into a flattened ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill at least 1 hour.

Pre-heat oven to 350. Roll out onto lightly floured board until approx. 1/4″ thick. Cut into heart shapes with cookie cutter. Place on parchment covered baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. Cool.

Stir together confectioner’s sugar, corn syrup and milk until smooth. Dip half of a cookie into icing, then set on waxed paper and sprinkle with heart-shaped candies. Let dry about 1/2 hour. Repeat with the rest of the cookies.
