Love Letter Cookies
What is better than a love letter? An edible love letter!! Who wouldn't want to get a sweet little love note that it completely made of sugar?
I absolutely adore these cookies even though they are less than perfect. It's those little imperfections that make them even cuter. I mean, if you look at a lined piece of paper, not all the lines are sharp or even. And neither is our handwriting (unless you are one of those amazing calligraphers, which I am most certainly not).
Another thing to love about these cookies is that they are one of the easier cookies I have made in a while. It doesn't really require a whole lot of technique to make the lined paper look. Then once they are dry, you can just write right on top. No fancy piping skills required!
Tools and Recipes
Since these cookies don't require a lot of precision, I just used standard zip-top sandwich bags for the icing. While I love using these bags because they are cheap, easy, and the icing doesn't flow out of the top, they do have their faults (watch all the way to the end of the video to see what I am talking about).
How to Make Them
There is nothing better than a good old video to show you how I made them, right?
What do you think? Do you think you could make these for Valentine's Day? I am positive you can! Remember, the beauty is in the imperfections!
