I needed some Valentine’s Day Cookies to bring to a Jr. League Bake Sale Auction, so I really wanted something eye-catching and delicious looking. I found this lovely decorating tutorial to use on a basic Sugar Cookie that looked perfect, Since I love to sew and these cookies have the coolest looking cross stitch pattern on them, I could not wait to get started on these. I already knew how much fun they would be to decorate. To make some yourself, you just need a few simple ingredients:
- A batch of your favorite heart-shaped sugar cookies
- Edible icing grids tutorial by My Little Bakery On Youtube
- Icing in various colors (Red, White, Green, Yellow, and Pink)
- Plastic Bags (for squirting your icing onto these cute little cookies)
First, stick your edible icing grids onto a pre iced cookie by lightly brushing it with a bit of water, then cutting the grid around the shape of the heart with scissors.
Then separate your icing into little bags and squeeze little dots onto your edible icing grid
Then keep making your little dot patterns to your heart’s content. As with any DIY, there is no right or wrong way to do things, it’s all a matter of taste and personal preference. These are your own artistic creations so let your imagination go wild here.
You can even make your delicious icing grid in different colors, again there is no right or wrong way to decorate these wonderful Cross-Stitch Cookies.
I hope you enjoy making these wonderful Cross Stitch Valentine’s Day Cookies as much as I did. This project also lends itself to a group effort very nicely as well. Needles to say, the Valentine’s Day Cookies made the Jr. League a lot of money this year and I was so glad I could do my part.
