Heart Shaped Cookies
So I was doing some grocery shopping the other day and couldn't help but notice all the valentines day promos around. I don't usually buy cards for V day but i fell in love with the colour palette on one of the cards and quickly purchased it.
Then I thought how cute a bunch of heart shaped cookies that matched the card would look, plus my girls have been begging me to make cookies so this was the perfect occasion.
I wasn't sure what ingredients I would need so I also grabbed some butter, sugar, eggs (needed a dozen anyway), some food colouring, vanilla extract and hoped I had everything else I needed at home. Oh and a heart shaped cookie cutter!
I got mine from Big W here
In the meantime place the icing sugar and water into another bowl and beat on medium speed until well combined. Then divide into 4 small bowls. Leave one white, add 3 drops of red food colouring to bowl number 2, 2 drops of yellow food colouring to bowl number 3, and 4 blue drops with 2 green drops of food colouring to bowl 4. This should leave you with 1 white icing, 1 pink icing, 1 yellow icing, and 1 aqua icing mix.
Once dough is cool and hard, roll out onto two different sheets of baking paper until about 5mm thick. Using your heart shape cutter cut out your hearts, You can use different sized cutters. Left over dough and be rolled out again to cut more hearts.
Place in oven on baking paper, and flat tray for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden. Do not place them too close together on the tray.
Once cooled ( on a wire rack) using a piping bag or spatula, spread your icing over the cookies following the heart shape and set aside to harden.
I was able to make two large trays of different sized cookies.
Thanks for stopping buy
