These cookies were made for packages that will be sent to our church's out-of-town college students.....sent by our senior adult group. I was so happy to make them to cheer everyone up. And my two oldest, Jill & Neil, will be in the list of recipients. :-))))))
I'm hoping to make cookies two more times next week to have plenty of cute hearts to share all around. :-)
I've been hanging out on CakeCentral these last few months and have gotten lots of great ideas for Valentines cookies from the awesome creators there. Check it out:
The site is actually for cake decorators, but it has a little corner just for "cookiers" too, so I hang out in that little spot. ;-)
I fell in love with this pattern when I first saw it and was a bit stunned that I could actual emulate it and it look decent.....so I did lots of them. :-)
I'm very fond of these pink ones too.
Here's some miscellaneous ones that I hope to improve the next couple of times I decorate these hearts. I've grown very fond of the "stitched" look since I love quilts and country things.
Here's a cool swirly design with red and white edible glitter (which looks like little globs from the bad reflections in this pic....lol).
This is a kind of bizarre one I tried with black mixed with red and white. I'm not sure I like this one, so I put it in my "reject" pile.....meaning the family's cookies. Kyle gobbled it right up. :0)
Here's all the "acceptable" cookies (lol) packaged up and ready to go.
