Method

Step 1
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In another large bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy and pale in color. Add egg, milk, and vanilla and beat until combined, then add flour mixture gradually until totally combined.

Step 2
Shape into a disk and wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 1 hour.

Step 3
When ready to roll, preheat oven to 177 C and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Lightly flour a clean work surface and roll out dough until 1/8” thick. Cut out shapes with a 2 1/2" heart-shaped shape cookie cutter and transfer to prepared baking sheets. Freeze 10 minutes (so your shapes hold while baking!)

Step 4
Bake until edges are lightly golden, 8 to 10 minutes.

Step 5
Make frosting: In a large bow using a hand mixer, beat cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and salt and beat until combined.

Step 6
Divide frosting into 3 bowls. Add pink food coloring to one bowl and red food coloring to another. Stir each bowl and add more food coloring until desired color is reached. Frost cookies using an offset spatula with each color of frosting, then top with sprinkles.
