Valentine’s Day Sugar Cookies

I went to Target this weekend, and they had so many cute Valentine’s themed baking items that my head almost exploded. I bought lots of stuff, including some heart-shaped cookie cutters. Sugar cookies it is!

Now, like all things I make, I want my baked goods to look professional. This, being my first attempt at professional looking sugar cookies, didn’t work out too well. They sure taste good. At least I have that.

Here are the ingredients I used. I took a shortcut and used premade sugar cookie dough.

I cut out various heart shapes and added sprinkles!

Little did I know that it helps the cookies to keep their shape if you chill them again after cutting, so I didn’t do this. They were pretty much misshapen blobs!

So, I thought maybe if I baked the cookie IN the cutter.

It kind of worked. Obviously, this is not how sugar cookies are supposed to look.

Oh well. I started making the Royal Icing, and dyed it pink.

These were what I came up with…not that impressive but still tasty!

I also wanted to show the incredible MESS I made in my kitchen.
