Valentine Sprinkle Cookies

I've made sprinkle cookies before and posted the recipe but these are just a teensy bit different and a teensy bit cuter with the adorable mini sugar hearts sprinkled on top. There is still time to whip up a batch for Valentine's day or anyday for that matter.

Valentine Sprinkle Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup sprinkles plus hearts for the top

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla.
Beat in dry ingredients and fold in sprinkles.
Shape into balls and flatten slightly by pressing additional sprinkles on top.
(I made about 18 cookies
Chill the dough for about 30 minutes to prevent spread. Bake in pre-heated 350F
oven for 8 minutes and cool on baking sheet. These will be very soft, yummy cookies.
