Active time: 15 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a stand mixer, cream butter and confectioners’ sugar until fluffy. Add vanilla; combine. Add flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and red pepper flakes. Beat to combine. Wrap dough in plastic wrap; refrigerate 20 minutes.
On a floured surface, roll out dough ¼" thick. Using a 1" heart-shaped cutter, cut out cookies. Place ½” apart on trays. Sprinkle with red sanding sugar; press to adhere. Bake until golden around edges, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
