Modern Valentine's Day Heart Cookies by Hani from Haniela's
To make these cookies you need:
-Heart shape cookies, any size, any shape. The Cookie Cutter Company has a great selection of heart shape cookie cutters.
-You can use any cut out cookie dough you'd like. I used my honey cookies (recipe), but sugar cookies (recipe) would be a great substitute as well.
-Blue, Red and Yellow, White Royal Icing (recipe), I used Americolors to color my icing.
-Thin your icing to 15 second consistency, this is a term cookie decorators use and it basically means, that you thin icing with little bit of water to the point when you run a knife through the icing and count to 15 line will disappear in about 15 seconds.
- Using white icing, pipe a smaller heart inside of the cookies. Let crust over, for about 10 minutes.
-Then take blue icing and pipe zic-zag line all across the white heart you just piped. Let crust over for about 10 minutest.
-Then using the same blue icing, flood the remaining areas of the cookie, first outline the cookie and then flood it with icing. Let dry completely before handling cookies.
-Alternate colors, using, red, yellow and blue icing.
