Valentine's Cookies -
 
 
I baked a few sugar cookies from scratch. Normally, I buy the pilsbury refrigated kind and roll them out, but I was looking for a challenge. They turned out great and taste yummy without frosting. It was exciting to finally use a bunch of my 100 box of cookie cutters.

Sugar Cookies
 I have always wanted to learn how to make really pretty and ornate details on cookies. Ever since I started my cake decorating classes, I knew I wanted to tackle cookies next. So I ordered a new cookie book called Cookie Craft from Amazon. It only took a few days to get here. It has lots of ideas on how to decorate cookies for all the different holidays.

I made royal icing in different colors. Filled some pastry bags and ta da..this is what i ended up with.

Since I didn't have a squeeze bottle to flood the cookies I used a toothpick to spread the icing around and man that took forever. Next time I'm going to pick me up a squeeze bottle. The two cookies below are my favorite, with the zig zag type design.

The double heart cookie is royal icing with red sugar sprinkles on top and then I piped dots around the edges. Overrall, I think I did a good job for my first cookie decorating experiment.
