Sugar Cookie Hearts


I love all the creative ways you can decorate a simple sugar cookie. By using Royal icing you can design your own masterpiece..

Recipe
Bake your favorite sugar cookie recipe

Royal icing
4 Cups Powdered Sugar
3-4 Tablespoons cold water
3 Tablespoons Meringue power - you can find this at specialty stores such as Micheal's. I think Walmart may ever carry it.

I divide the icing into small bowls about 1/2 cup in each. Add a few drops of  food coloring mix well so you don't get streaks. You may have to more drops until you get the color you want.

I use disposable piping bags with a #3 tip but you can use what you are comfortable with. Just snipping a small hole in the piping bag will do.

I like working with Royal icing. You can be very creative or very simple in your designs and it always seems to come out looking pretty good.  These are also fun to do with the kids. Let them show off their creative side too.



Another take on the sugar cookie cut out. Chocolate filled Hearts.
