Ingredients

  • 2

    cup(s) all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled

  • ½

    cup(s) yellow cornmeal

  • ½

    teaspoon(s) coarse salt

  • 1

    cup(s) (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

  • ¾

    cup(s) granulated sugar

  • 1

    large egg

  • teaspoon(s) pure vanilla extract

  • ½

    cup(s) confectioners' sugar

  • 1

Directions

1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and 1/2 cup granulated sugar on medium-high until creamy, 3 minutes. Add egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla and beat until combined. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture and beat to combine. 2.Place 1/4 cup granulated sugar in a small bowl; roll dough into 1-inch balls and coat with sugar. Transfer to two parchment-lined baking sheets. With the bottom of a glass, flatten balls to 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Press a 1-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter into each (do not cut through). Bake until cookies are golden at edges, 10 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cookies cool on wire racks. 3.In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners' sugar, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 3/4 teaspoons cold water. Whisk in food coloring. With a small spoon, spread glaze inside heart. Let set 15 minutes.
