Show off your sweet side this valentine’s day
Treat family, friends and co-workers to something they will all love this Valentine’s Day by making easy and impressive cookies. Start with your favorite roll-out cookie recipe or simply dress up store-bought ones by adding some simple details with icing.
From the cupids at Wilton, here are three ways to leave them smitten with sweets this Valentine’s Day:
Desserts with dimension. Triple your treats by stacking three decorated cookies in different sizes together and attach them with icing.
Complement with color. A simple piping technique looks stunning when piped in different colors on your cookies.
Get to gifting. Wrap your finished treats in a Valentine’s Day treat bag or box.
Scalloped Heart Cookies
Each cookie serves 1.
Ready-To-Use White Creamy Decorator Icing
Icing Colors: Burgundy, Red-Red and Christmas Red
Prepare and roll out dough following recipe directions. Use largest cutter from the 4-piece heart nesting cookie cutter set to cut out shape. Bake and cool cookies.
Divide icing into four equal portions. Tint one of each portion light burgundy, dark burgundy and combination of red-red/Christmas red. Reserve last portion white.
Starting from top edge of heart, use tip 102 and icing in dark burgundy, light burgundy, red and white to pipe V-shaped groups of two petals, one piped from left and one from right, to create row of petals in alternating colors. Repeat with second row between petals in first row. Continue to repeat pattern until cookies are covered.
