Valentine Heart Cookies - February 2011

I made these Valentine heart cookies for my son, Caleb's, 3rd grade class Valentine's Day party.

To make these cookies I followed the directions on the sugar cookie mix to make cut-out cookies.  While the dough was mixing I added a little bit of red food coloring to it to make the dough pink.  I rolled out the dough and cut my hearts shapes out with a cookie cutter.  I baked the cookies and let them cool completely.  Then I put some vanilla buttercream icing in a piping bag and used a round tip  to pipe on my designs (I think I used a #4, but a #3 would probably have worked better, I just couldn't find mine).

I really like the way these cookies turned out, like little old-school valentines.  :)  Caleb enjoyed sharing them with his class at the party.

  2. I love the lacey look! I host a weekly meme called Thematic Thursday. Each week has a theme and this would be perfect for this week's Valentine's theme.
