I lurrrve to make something  which is not run of the mill stuff and I found these cookies perched on the edge  to be quite unique and cute! Its a regular cut -out cookie in a heart shape which is by the way  perfect for Valentines Day!The only thing that you will require is a cookie cutter in a shape of I.
This recipe for cookies is by Nigella and you dont need to adapt or make any changes,since her recipes are somehow purrrrrfect!!

Cut-Out Cookies

Add Timer



       6 tablespoons soft unsalted butter        1/2 cup sugar         1 large egg         1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract         1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour         1/2 teaspoon baking powder          1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine dry ingredients together-flour,baking powder and salt. Cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy,beat in egg and vanilla.Add dry ingredients and mix slowly.Form into a disk, in plastic wrap, and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Roll it out to a thickness of about 1/4-inch . The easiest way I find is to roll it in between two plastic sheets!Cut into a heart shape with cookie cutter, and using your "I" shapped cutter cut the slot out. If not using the above recipe then you may want to freeze the dough for a few minutes before baking it as the dough may tend to expand during baking process.Should that happen,while your cookies are still hot, you can re-cut them.
Place the cookies a little apart on  parchment or silpat lined baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 12  minutes,at 180C, the cookies are done when the edges turn golden and the middle is slightly soft but set while they cool.
