Today, I whipped up some sugar cookies. I used royal icing, which dries to a very hard finish. I’ll be able to stack these cookies when they dry. I was originally frosting different cookies, but I switched to hearts after I mixed the icing. As a result, my heart cookies are kind of patriotic. Pastel-y, but patriotic.
I’ve got a lone Lone Star State cookie up in the corner. That’s what I was working on, but the icing colors turned out too light for the effect I was going for. I’m fixing that tomorrow, so keep your eye out for them!
As a result, though, my heart cookies aren’t so much Valentine’s Day hearts as they are the hearts of enthusiastic Americans. They are rather tastier than American hearts, as I’m sure you can well imagine.
I’m pretty happy with them. Aren’t they cute?
Coming tomorrow (or maybe Tuesday, but I’m aiming for tomorrow): TEXAS COOKIES!! That was basically the best cookie cutter purchase I’ve ever made.
