‘Tis the season to be in love! Make this Valentine’s Day special by baking a batch of Milliken sugar cookies. It’s an easy and quick recipe that is perfect for the occasion. Forget the boxed chocolate and share your love with a heart-filled recipe from our home to yours. 

Here is the recipe for our sugar cookies, created by Milliken Executive Chef Jim McCallister.


  • ½ lb. sugar
  • 1 lb. butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ lb. cake flour
  • Dash of each: salt, vanilla, lemon extract, cinnamon


  1. Mix sugar and butter on speed number 1, but not to a creamy consistency.
  2. Add salt, vanilla, lemon extract, cinnamon, and eggs.
  3. Mix briefly then add flour and mix until it just starts to hold together.
  4. Refrigerate before rolling.
  5. Roll out sweet dough to 1/8” thickness. Be careful, the dough is very delicate.
  6. Cut with heart-shaped cutter. Using a smaller heart cutter, cut holes in half of the cookies.
  7. Bake in a 325 degree oven.
  8. Cool, then sandwich with raspberry jelly using the cut-out heart for the top. Stencil with confectioner’s sugar.
