Playd’s own ElectroJade gives gamers a easy way to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Hey Playd fans and the like! Learn how to make your own gamer cookies – Zelda style! It’s quick, easy, and perfect for your Valentine! Here’s the detailed recipe below:

1 cup all purpose flour

1/3 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup butter, softened

1/3 cup granulated white sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a bowl, mix the flour and baking soda together. Place this aside.

In another bowl, whisk together the butter and the sugar until it’s mixed well. Add the egg and the vanilla extract too. Separate this mixture into two bowls to add in the separate food coloring (Yellow food-coloring for the Triforces, and Pink food-coloring for the Hearts).

Once coloured, add a ½ cup of the flour mixture to each bowl. Beat until you have perfect dough.

Wrap the pieces of dough in plastic or wax wrap, and keep them in the freezer for fifteen minutes. Once out of the freezer, they should be firm to roll out.

At this time, it’s smart to preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Make sure you place the rack in the center of the oven as well.

Lightly flour your surface, and roll out the pieces of dough you’ve created. It’s better to roll our your dough to ½ cm for your cookies. The dough shouldn’t be too thick, or else your triforces might puff up and look like balloons. Balloons, people!

To cut out the cookies shapes, you can use a spatula and a spoon. For the triforces, cut out a triangle with your spatula. Use the spatula to cut three triangles within the cookie you’ve just cut out. You should have your three triangles to make a triforce. Piece them together on a greased baking sheet. For the hearts, use a spoon to create cookie curves and points.

You can even add some sparkling sugar on your cookies for an added bonus.

Once you’ve cut your cookies and placed them on your greased baking sheet, bake your cookies for seven to eight minutes.

Take them out, and place them on a plate to cool off. Once cool, enjoy the deliciousness and savor each bite!

You can add more to your treats by placing them in a jar (any jar, really), or siding them with a glass of lon lon milk. It’s hilarious, cute and gamer-friendly!

Wishing you guys an awesome Valentine’s Day! Cheers!
