Exactly what I was looking for! This is a great basic recipe, they don't spread in the oven so it's perfect for making shaped cookies and it's SO quick to make.-25 Oct 2011

Something else.I halved the ingedients to make a smaller batch - although I think it would have frozen well and kept for another week.My tweak was to then take half the finished mix and add a few drops of red food coloring. I rolled the white out and then rolled the pink and placed them ontop of eachother and rolled into a sausage. After leaving it in the freezer for a while I sliced them and cooked them - they looked LOVELY. Perfect for a girly party! Will post pics next time I make them-18 Feb 2011

This recipe is easy and the cookies are delicate and delicious. The only change I made was to substitute cake flour for plain.Although I decorated them all, they definitely do not need frosting.-28 Jan 2012

The flood icing should be a little looser, creating a smooth ribbon when you lift it in the bowl with a spoon, similar to Elmer’s glue. That way it will be easy to spread. I noticed that the less water you add, the quicker the flood icing will dry.

It takes about 6 hours plus for this icing to dry, longer if the icing is thick. It may take a few tries, but just continue to check the texture, adding more powder sugar to thicken, and a little bit of water to loosen the icing.

For coloring the icing on the Valentine cookies, I recommend Wilton Gel Icing Colors. You only need a very small amount of gel color to achieve the colors you want and the icing does not get diluted. I use a toothpick to transfer a small amount of gel color to the icing, then mix with a spoon while adjusting the intensity and hue of the colors as needed.

The royal icing recipe makes about 1 3/4 cups, just enough for about 7 colors at 1/4 cup (2 ounces each) split up for border and flood icing for 12 cookies. It may be easier to make a few colors or make two separate batches or royal icing base if making several different colors.

From here you can wrap them up in clear bags and give them as delicious cookie presents, or make conversation heart cookies with a message. You can use border icing or edible markers to write your special notes on each cookie. Make sure the surface is completely dry before packaging or writing on the cookies.

Valentine’s Sugar Cookies

Valentine’s sugar cookies are perfect—soft in the center, slightly crisp at the edges, and sweet but not too sweet through and through. Heart-shaped and perfect for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Easter, and random days when cookie cravings steamroll you.

Flower-shaped cookies. What a lovely alternative to a pricey bouquet for your sweetie on Valentine’s Day. The versatile sugar cookie dough can be rolled out and cut into any desired shape for any time of year and turns out what folks are calling “crunchy with a chewy center, buttery and sweet” and “truly stress-free cookies.” You could opt to omit the sugar topping and decorate them with the icing of your choice.–Renee Schettler
