Sweet Valentines Cookies (Yield: 35)

  • 6 cups (750 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (450 g) unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 cup (400 g) regular sugar
  • 2 large eggs

Put the butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and beat until fluffy.

Add the eggs and beat for another minute.

Add the flour little by little, beating until well blended.

E95A9816

When the dough clumps together into a ball, it’s done.

E95A9824

Divide the dough in two, form both into fat discs and wrap in plastic wrap.

Put them in the fridge to rest for 45 minutes.

E95A9827

Roll the dough out between two sheets of baking parchment.

E95A9933

Cut out your shapes, I use a heart shaped cookie cutter.

E95A9936

Arrange on a lined baking tray and place in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Bake in a 320 ˚F (160 ˚C) oven for about 15 minutes.

Leave to cool completely.

Bubblegum Royal Icing

  • 3 1/2 cups (450 g) powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons meringue powder
  • 6 tablespoons hot water
  • 1-2 drops bubblegum essence (you can use another essence of your choice, or leave it out)
  • 1 tablespoon liquid glucose (optional)
  • Pink soft gel from Americolor

Put the meringue powder and powdered sugar into a mixing bowl and mix for one minute.

Continue to beat when adding the hot water, bubblegum essence and glucose, if using.

First pipe the outline of the cookie, I use the smallest circular tip from Wilton for this.

When you are ready to ice the center of each cookie you may need to add some extra water to the icing.

E95A0319

Leave overnight to set.

So cute to give to your love on Valentine’s Day…

I decorated some of the cookies with some extra vintage candies… arrange them on top of the royal icing before it sets.

    Disse så kjempegode ut! De skal jeg prøve å lage til uka :) Jeg lurer på om du lar de tørke på kjøkkenbenken til dagen etter eller om du setter de i kjøleskap? Og hvordan bør man oppbevare kjeksene?
