Sugar Cookies for Your Sweet

Simple ways to turn your basic sugar cookie recipe into hearts for your Sweet. Another one for  Cuocicucidici  Hart-to-Hart Valentine's Day contest that proved to be so much fun for me as I love to create and invent things from my kitchen and not so much for competing. 


To have fun making these cookies. You won't need much beyond good ingredients like dark chocolate or white. Use the things you already have in your kitchen like toothpicks, spatulas and cookie cutters. You will surprise yourself with unexpected results. So let loose the artist in you and start creating. I choose not to color the cookies other than chocolate but you can use color in any way you like.
For the cookie dough you will need 3 cups of flour, a pinch of salt, 1 1/2 stick of butter softened, 1 cup of sugar, 2 eggs, 2 tsp of vanilla and 2 tbsp of cocoa powder. For the icing you need 1 cup of confectioner's sugar, 2 tsp milk, 2 tsp light corn syrup, 1/4 tsp of almond extract and food coloring if you like. Here are some of the ones we had fun making at home.











Enjoy!
