Valentines Day Prep
I made these cookies today in preparation for Valentines Day. I am sure they will be gone before then though. Baking is one of my other loves (besides travel and fashion). My favorite things to make are cakes and cookies. I love making cookies because there are so many cute cookie cutters out there! I am starting to get a pretty big collection of fun cookie cutters. I bought these heart shaped ones recently. The set I got was from Walmart and it came with 5 different size hearts. I've really only just begun to dabble in sugar cookie making. I used to make all of the other types of cookies because sugar cookies are more time consuming.
To make these I just used a recipe that I found online. You can find that HERE. It's a really good recipe in my opinion. To get chewy cookies I just made them a little bit thicker and took them out of the oven after 6-7 minutes. The tiny ones I took out even sooner. To frost them smoothly I just made my icing more liquid-y. I used a piping bag and a thin round tip. I am definitely no professional but I have been doing a little bit of research on decorating techniques. For the piping, I used thicker icing after the base layer cooled.
I wanted to incorporate a few other topics into my blog, besides just fashion. If you regularly read my blog you have probably noticed the beauty posts as well. I will be doing another post for Valentines Day when the actual day gets closer. It will be an outfit post so stay tuned!
