Valentine's Day Cookie Decorating

Feb 07, 2014

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time for cookies. Well, most any time is the perfect time for cookies, but Valentine’s Day is the perfect time for decorating cookies and giving them away to loved ones, or just eating them yourself.

Using regular old sugar cookies and icing use these great decorating ideas to make your Valentine’s Day cookies unique! But first, you need your canvas...

Sugar Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 ¾ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. In a small bowl mix flour, baking soda and baking powder.
  3. In a large bowl mix the butter and sugars together. Add egg and vanilla.
  4. If you want to color your cookies, add food coloring now and make sure it mixes into the dough evenly.
  5. Roll balls of dough about a teaspoon’s amount. If you want a special cookie shape, roll the dough out and use a cookie cutter.
  6. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden.
  7. Let cool on cookie sheet.
  8. Get decorating!

Envelope Kiss Cookies

Not the usual heart cookies, these lips and love letter cookies are sure to be unique and lovely.

Ingredients:

  • Sugar cookies- either a homemade recipe above or store bought guys
  • Rectangular and kiss shaped cookie cutters
  • Icing- red, white and black.
  • Plastic baggies

Directions:

  1. Before you bake your cookies cut out the rectangular and kiss shapes.
  2. Let the cookies cool.
  3. If you have special cookie decorating icing that can be used straight from the squeeze bottle- get to decorating!
  4. If you don’t, fill the plastic baggies with icing. Work the icing to one corner of the bag and cut the very tip of the corner. Now use that to decorate the finer kiss shape and the outline on the lips and kiss.
  5. Enjoy!

Directions:

  1. When the cookies are cool enough, place the stencil over your cookie. Make sure it won’t move around.
  2. Using a sifter, sift the powdered sugar over the stencil and cookie. The sifter makes the sugar super fine- like dust.
  3. Write the message you want, plate it up and give your lovely some delicious reading.
