Iced Heart Cookies
Show your love with these adorable sugar cookies! They're cut out in heart shapes and decorated with royal icing and edible luster dust.
Cutting out Cookies: Rolling the dough between two sheets of floured parchment keeps it from sticking to the rolling pin. Dip the cutters in flour as well before each cut, and dust the spatula, too, before transferring the uncooked dough to the baking sheets.
Royal Icing: If you want an icing with thinner consistency, which is usually used for flooding, add more water. A thicker consistency is generally used for outlining and adding details. If you're decorating cookies for children, pregnant women, or anyone with a compromised immune system, use meringue powder instead of egg whites.
