Valentine Cookies

These Valentine Sugar Cookies are easy to make and they taste great. If you send a couple dozen to school with your child on Valentine's Day, you could find yourself on the short list for the class Mom of the Year!

Start by using your favourite heart shaped cookie cutter to make Vanilla Sugar Cookies. While the cookies are baking, roll out coloured fondant to about 1/16th of an inch thick. Time saver: Use the pasta attachment on a Kitchenaid mixer to do your rolling for you.

Using the same cookie cutter as you used for your cookies, cut a similar piece of fondant. Lightly brush the warm (or slightly cooled) cookie with corn syrup and gently place the fondant on top. Smooth with fondant smoother or with the palm of your hand. Impressions can be made with acrylic scrapbooking tools or with Impression Mats made especially for cookies and cakes. Use your imagination and add sugar pearls, royal icing dots, fondant flowers, etc.

I like to let the decorated cookies sit for about 12 hours in order for the decorations to set - then wrap in cello and tie with a ribbon. Easy and fun!
