Valentine’s Day Cookies – another BUI

I found these awesome looking cookies at Sweetapolita and HAD to make them.  I sent the link to Julia and we made sure another Baking Under the Influence date was soon to follow.

Since Sweetapolita didn’t give us an exact recipe, we decided to come up with our own and cut some corners.  It was a week night and we only had so much time to make cookies and have some wine.

You’ll need:

  • Sugar cookie dough (homemade or store-bought in the refrigerated section… that’s what we did!)
  • cookie cutters
  • icing
  • fondant
  • pink or red food coloring
  • script rubber stamp

wine and smirnoff ice… classy! 🙂

We rolled out the dough and cut them with the heart-shaped cookie cutters and baked according to the directions on the package.  While the cookies were cooling, we moved on to the fondant part.  We used Duff Goldman’s fondant (LOVE HIM!!!!), which can be bought at most craft stores like Michael’s.  The fondant we had was solid as a rock and had to be microwaved, per instructions on the container.  Once it was soft, we added just a tiny bit of red food coloring and kneaded it until the dye was even through out.  We rolled it thin, cut heart shapes and then stamped the fondant with the script stamp.  Affix a little dab of icing on the middle of the cookie to secure the fondant onto the cookie.

How cute!  Especially for cutting corners.  Yum!
