For the royal icing, you can make several batches in advance. First, you need to prepare the sugar cookie dough. If you don’t have a recipe for it, you can purchase some or buy some in a grocery store. The dough will be soft and crumbly but you can roll it out between 1/8 and 1/4 inch thick. When you have completed your cookies, you can decorate them with royal icing, and keep them in an airtight container for up to two months.
The royal icing is easy to make and can be used to decorate your Valentine’s cookies. Divide the dough into separate containers and add food coloring to each batch. The icing can be thinned or thickened by adding more water. The recipe makes about six to eight cups of icing, and it takes about 6 to eight hours for the icing to completely dry. The cookies should be refrigerated for a couple of hours before decorating.
Royal icing is also easy to prepare and use. You can use leftover egg whites, which are fine for making the icing. When it’s time to decorate your valentines’ cookies, you can freeze the mixture in a freezer for up to two months. After decorating the cookies, you can put them in an airtight container to store them. Once you’ve decorated them, you can decorate them with royal icing.
Aside from decorating the cookies with royal icing, you can also use it as a decorative topping. For example, you can pipe dots on cookies using a red-and-white flood consistency royal icing. Alternatively, you can create a marbled design by piping stripes of white and pink flood consistency iced in wet red royal icing. As you can see, a royal icing cookie can be decorated with ease, so you can impress your loved one with this romantic treat.
You can also use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to decorate the cookies. They are easy to decorate and look great as a substitute for traditional Valentine’s Day candies. To make these cute sugar cookies, use a roll-out sugar cookie recipe, a LOVE Cookie Cutter Set, and Royal Icing. Once the cookies have cooled, you can use your royal icing to decorate them.
