Classic Valentines Decorated Cookie Collection

Awwww……classic Valentines. I’m always drawn back to them. They remind me of sitting down with my kids every year with a tableful of doilies, colored paper, stickers, glitter, etc and going crazy making Valentines for each family member. They loved it! It was an arts and crafts day along with a big ‘ole family tradition all wrapped into one. Good memories.

Sending you all affection and gratitude on this very special day to share LOVE.

Happy Valentines Day!

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Happy Valentines Day Decorated Cookie Collection

Valentines Day is such a fun holiday to decorate cookies..... for multiple reasons. First of all, it is the day to express love, and since cookies do that every day of year, it just makes sense to make cookies for the ones we love and cherish. And then, there is a bazillion ways to decorate heart cookies and the like to customize them to each color combination and style. 

I love choosing a sprinkle mix made by Sweets & Treats and then making a whole slew of cookies to match it. For this set, I used the Sweet Treats mix and added some red into it too. :)

I hope you can feel the love and enjoy the Valentines Day holiday. I'm sending lots of love within this blog post to all of you....

Embossed Cookie Dough Valentines Decorated Cookies

As this Valentines season drew close, I really wanted to incorporate texture into the cookie dough before baking... to take advantage of that beautiful 3D look. Once you've rolled it into the dough and baked it, all you have to do is dust it to emphasize the impressions.

The most important part of this process is rolling the texture into the dough before baking. Here's a video (of a different project) showing how to place the texture mat face down on the dough and use the pressure of the rolling pin to make the impressions into the dough before baking it. The relevant part is at the very beginning of the video.

Once the cookies are baked and cooled, brush food coloring or dust over the surface to bring out all the details. For these Valentine cookies, I used Americolor Bright White gel for some and gold dust mixed with vodka for others.

After completing the dusting of the textures, embellish the cookies with layered patterns, mini cookies, or cut-out edible clay pieces.

The background texture really makes these cookies "pop".

Happy Valentines Day Decorated Cookie Collection 2017

Oh the love...... spread one cookie at a time. 

Valentines Day is the perfect holiday to make cookies for those we love.
And the decorating doesn't have to be complicated.....simple goes a long way.

On this day of expressing love, I wanted to take a moment once again to tell you how much I appreciate your presence on this site.
My ultimate goal is to spread love with cookies.....and you allow me to do that.
Thank you!

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, 
it keeps no record of wrongs. 
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled;
where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 
For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 
For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. 
Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. 
But the greatest of these is love.

I Corinthians 13:4-13
