I tried a couple of different recipes for my valentine cookies this year and wasn't happy with the taste of them. "If it's not broke don't fix it!" What was I thinking? My favorite cookie is always ginger but I think Valentine's Day calls for chocolate or sugar. I did decorate them but they are still in the freezer waiting for me to decide what to do about them! It's a little late this year to put them on the blog except for these that I made just for fun - to put on the blog. Happy Valentine's Day!

By Valentine's Day last year I had discovered the cookie bloggers and was trying new ways of decorating. And with Americolor gels getting a good red icing was easy. I decided that piping and filling with royal icing left a better edge than simply spreading the icing on the cookie.
I was trying out the wet on wet technique - so perfect for making a heart by dragging a toothpick down the center of a dot. The scalloped outline in icing on that square cookie didn't turn out because the icing was too thin and the heart bled for the same reason - but I liked the look of the cookie. I love red. I love Valentine's Day - it's my birthday! So - from the archives here's a plate of sugar cookie hearts.
