Soft and chewy, these gorgeous cookies are insanely tasty.

They’re a vibrant red color and studded with sweet chunks of white chocolate, making for a very eye-catching plate.

The recipe uses fresh strawberries so you get all their intense juicy flavor.

And each cookie is topped off with a thin vanilla glaze that perfectly highlights the fruitiness.

Light, fluffy, and bursting with sweet strawberry flavor, they’re the perfect way to say ‘I love you.’

9. Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies

If chocolate is the aphrodisiac they say it is, you better be careful with these rich cocoa cookies.

Fudgey and dense, they’re intensely chocolatey.

Serve them with a maraschino cherry nestled in the soft center and drizzle with a thick chocolate fudge sauce for the full effect.

Italian Wedding Cookies in a Green Plate

10. Mexican Wedding Cookies

Valentine’s Day is the most popular day to propose, so why not get ahead of things with these traditional wedding cookies?

Round shortbread cookies, they’re also referred to as butterballs and definitely live up to the name.

Rich, crumbly, and buttery, it’s hard to eat just one!

Notoriously light and airy, madeleines are often intimidating for novice cooks.

This simple recipe is unbelievably easy with just a few steps to creating the perfect pastry.

Enjoy warm and golden brown from the oven and you’ll wonder where these treats have been all your life.

13. Vanilla Tea Cake Cookies

Sometimes, basic is best.

These deceptively simple vanilla cookies might not need a lot of fuss, but they’re crispy, crumbly, and full of buttery vanilla flavor. 

An easy treat for Valentine’s, these are also a great option for the holidays, so save the recipe… you’ll need it!

Chocolate Icebox Cookies

14. Chocolate Icebox Cookies

Everyone should have a batch of cookie dough in their freezer. That’s how you’ll know you’re winning at life.

It’s also very convenient when you want cookies, but you have better things to do than whisk up batter.

Make this delicious dough ahead of time, pop it in the freezer, and pull it out whenever you’re ready. 

Flavored with cocoa powder and cinnamon, these are welcome any time. But especially when you’ve something to celebrate, like new love.

Kitchen Sink Cookies with Crushed Pretzels and Nuts

15. Kitchen Sink Cookies

Ok, so they may not have the most romantic name, but kitchen sink cookies are a great option for beginner bakers.

Incredibly easy, they’re a copycat of a Panera Bread recipe for chewy, chocolate chip cookies. 

As the name suggests, you can throw anything in there once you’ve mastered the basic batter. Nuts, dried fruit, orange zest, mini-marshmallows.

This is a great starter recipe for creative cooks.

16. Meringue Cookies

Elegant and sophisticated, meringues are a classy cookie that makes an impression.

Crinkle cookies are usually a Christmas food in my house, but I’m prepared to make a Valentine’s exception for this gorgeous recipe.

And there’s lots of intense sweetness thanks to the addition of white chocolate chips.

These decadent bites are definitely the thing for sweet-toothed lovebirds.

18. Dulce de Leche Sandwich Cookies

Confession time – I could (and sometimes do) eat dulce de leche straight from the jar with a spoon.

There’s just something about the winning combination of butter, caramel, treacle, and syrupy sweetness.

But I’m told it’s not socially acceptable to eat it straight, so this recipe is a good compromise.

You’ll still get all that rich goodness. Just spread in a thick, gooey layer between crumbly butter cookies.

Peanut Butter Blossoms

19. Peanut Butter Blossoms

The magical thing about these peanut butter blossoms is the chocolate kiss hiding in the center.

If love’s not enough to boost your mood, these will certainly do the trick.

This unique recipe turns boxed cake mix into soft, pillowy cookies that melt in the mouth. 

They’re crinkly on top, spongy in the middle, and they’re best enjoyed with special friends or people that you want to become special friends.

22. Red Velvet Cookie for Two

If Romeo and Juliet had shared this huge red velvet cookie, I’ll bet their tale would’ve had a happier ending.

There’s no doomed love allowed around this dessert. It’s just too sweet and delicious.

Baked in a cast-iron skillet, this is a cookie that’s made to share.

Top it with thick chocolate syrup and a generous helping of ice cream, and things are sure to get romantic.

They’re made by dipping pink wafers into red candy melts and sprinkles and letting them chill until set.

25. Red Hot Cookies

Sweet and spicy, these ‘hot’ cookies will get you in the mood for romance.

Because who says love should be hard work?

28. Raspberry Lemon Cookies

Light and fresh, these sophisticated cookies are full of bright fruity flavor.

The tartness of the lemon is perfectly balanced with a hit of sweet raspberry, all wrapped up in a buttery cookie crumb.

29. Teddy Graham Valentine Conversation Heart Cookies

It doesn’t get much cuter than these tiny teddy bears.

Each one holds a mini candy heart with endearing messages written on it like ‘love you’ and ‘cutie’.

And the good news is that you don’t need any baking or artistic skills to pull off this Valentine’s treat. Assembly is easy and there’s zero cooking involved!

30. Heart Macarons With Lemon Buttercream

The French do two things well – love and pastries.

So it’s no surprise that this French-inspired recipe is a hit for Valentine’s. 

Gorgeously fluffy macarons are cut into perfect pink hearts and given a gooey layer of citrus-scented buttercream. 

You’ll be in love from the first bite.
