Here Comes The Hearts......

I made a small batch of heart cookies last week when I was making my winter cookies so that I could decorate them today. By the way......baked sugar cookies freeze really well. :-)

Here's various red hearts. My red icing was giving me fits today because it was thinner than the rest. It kept going over the side. :-( (I won't be showing you those cookies. ; )) Notice the cool red disco dust in the two cookies to the right.....I love that stuff!! ( You may not be able to see it because it is hard to photograph. )


Various pink hearts. I'm loving all this pink....especially against the burgundy background.


Two random designs. The red heart was inspired by Myri's awesome cookies. Mine don't even begin to compare......but I had to try such a fun pattern.


I love this little double heart. I just got the cutter in the mail right after I made these.....so now I won't have to do crazy things in order to have double hearts. ;-)


Surprise.....patchwork hearts!


Here's my favorite of the bunch.......plaid with a "lacey" edge. I love how these turned out. =)


Everyone together.....




You'll be seeing lots more Valentines cookies. I have new cutters, plus lots of ideas. As always, can't wait!

Wow, Pam. As always, brilliant cookies!! You are my favorite muse for cookie decorating.

I had one question: for the camera cookies that you posted previously, how thick do you roll the dough? It looks pretty thick, like 1/2" or so?

Soph said...

JUST BRILLIANT!!!!!!!
YOU'RE AN AMAZING INSPIRATION!

MY HUMBLE THANK U.

These are beautiful!

Pam said...

Thanks to all of you. :-)

frankdiabetes.....all my cookies are 3/8" thick (by using the DoBoard). The camera is thicker since the lens circle adds another 3/8".

Alli said...

Pam,
I'm in the UK and I discovered your blog today. I have spent all day and I mean ALL DAY reading your blog, combing it for information, sitting slack-jawed in awe, drooling over your cutters, you are a real inspiration to someone just starting out with cookie decorating!

You are my new hero!

Alli said...

Sorry Pam, that's not what I wrote? Huh? These are amazing as always, I especially love the lace edges and finally I have a cookie cutter that you do, the double heart, so I hope you don't mind me using your amazing work as inspiration!

Pam said...

Thanks everyone! Your comments and encouragement are so appreciated.

Grandma Tilley's Bakery and Alli.....I'm honored that these have inspired you. Please feel free to decorate away!

I couldn't come up with these ideas without being inspired by others. We're all in this together. :-)

These are so beautiful. Maybe someday I'll get brave enough to move away from cakes and attempt some cookie decorating! I love love love your blog!

Lyndsey said...

A question, if you don't mind...how do you apply the disco dust? I was looking at it again today at Country Kitchen and am so tempted to get some, just not sure how to use it! thanks!

Pam said...

Thanks again to all of you and your very kind comments.

Lyndsey......I just sprinkle it on. It's awesome and so fun! =)

I love your cookies. They are so cute. I see you live in Missouri. WE just moved back to Missouri. Where in the state do you live???
We're in Wildwood.

Pam said...

Hi Red Geranium Cottage. We live close! I'm in St. Peters. And oh....I just looked at your blog. We like the same styles I can see. You quilt!!!! I don't quilt, but try to make them on cookies. ha ha

It's nice to meet you. :-)

(And by the way, you mentioned menopause.....me too. Ugh.)

Toni said...

I love your cookies and I love that you love Jesus!!!

Thanks for all the inspiration!

Pam said...

Thanks so much, Toni. :-)))))

Dianne said...

Like many others I enjoy looking at your cookies on a regular basis and find inspiration to try my own. I would like to look at Myri's pics that you refer to, but it says I don't have permission. Do the photos belong to a group? May I join?

Pam said...

Thanks so much, Dianne. I believe Myri had to make her photos private in order to make them available for a publisher. I'm sorry you can't view them. :-(
