DIY: Valentine Cookies

February 14, 2018

Hello again :)

For this Valentine's Day I wanted to make a special V-Day treat. One that looks complicated to make, but is really so simple.

Here's how I made my new favorite Valentine's Day cookies!

Ingredients:

Cookies-
Two packs of sugar cookie dough (or dough of your choosing)

Icing-
Powdered sugar
Water
Food coloring (optional)

Utensils-
Baking sheet
Wooden stick
Edible cookie decorations (found here)
Cookie cutters

To make the heart shaped cookies, I baked sugar cookies in a cake pan, let them cool, then used cookie cutters to make heart shapes before they hardened. 


I then made the icing and iced the edges.

To ice the cookies, I made a border icing and flood icing. Basically what this means is the border icing is thicker than the middle icing. I took 1 cup of powdered sugar and added three and a half tablespoons of water. I mixed it up, put it in a zip lock baggie, and cut the corner to make an icing bag. I repeated these steps for the middle icing, only I added more water to make it more liquid than the border icing. You can eye it out to see how much extra water you will need to add.

Step 1: Border ice the cookie


Step 2: Spoon middle icing onto cookie


Step 3: Use wooden stick (or anything else that would work) to move icing to cover the whole face of the cookie





Step 4: Scrape any excess icing off of the sides



Step 5: Place edible cookie decoration on top of wet icing




Step 6: Scrape any excess icing off sides, and viola!


Valentine's Day cookies suitable for any love of yours!



I hope you enjoyed this guys! There's still time to make these today if you need a last minute festive treat :)

Enjoy!
