Cherry Valentine Cookies: Valentine on a Stick

Valentine Cookies: Valentine on a Stick
1 cup butter, softened
1¼ cups powdered sugar
1 egg
2-1/2 tsp. raspberry extract, divided
2½ cups flour
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 can Funfetti frosting

Prep: 15 minutes Chill: several hours Cook: 8 to 14 minutes per batch Makes: 20 to 24 cookies

1. To make the dough: In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Stir in egg and 2 tbsp. extract. Mix together dry ingredients and stir into butter mixture. Wrap and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Roll dough out onto a lightly floured board 1/4-inch thick. Cut with a 3-inch, heart-shaped cookie cutter and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
3. Wrap a little dough around 10 popsicle sticks and tuck under the pointed end of half of the dough hearts; press lightly. (Do not put a popsicle stick on the remaining 10 or so dough hearts.)
4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until starting to brown around the edges. Let cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a baking rack to cool. Stir together 1 can of pink Funfetti frosting and 1/2 tsp. cherry extract. Spread over the flat side of the cookie without sticks and sprinkle the edges with colored sprinkles.
5. Top with remaining cookies to create a sandwich. Decorate with additional frosting, if desired. When frosting is dry, decorate the sticks with ribbons.
