It’s Wednesday…

3 Feb

…which means I felt like baking valentine’s cookies! Just a couple of weeks early, but check out how cute! The inspiration for this bake-a-thon came from the conversation-heart cookies featured in this month’s  William’s-Sonoma catalog, and that inspiration became reality with the help of Annie over at Annie’s Eats, my new favorite food blog. She wrote a great post on decorating with royal icing… and although I certainly don’t have the practiced decorator’s hand that she does, it was a lot of fun. And messy. And I ended up eating too much cookie dough, and whichever cookies got broken in the process.

However, I managed to make enough cookies to give as gifts to some people that I love.The cookie recipe is from Martha Stewart’s Cookies (Grammy’s Chocolate Cookies, p. 75), and the topping is Royal Icing. Lots of excitement in the kitchen on this cold February day!
