Valentine's month away!

Time to start thinking about this year's's a LOVE postage stamp cookie that I love. Why? Number 1, the LOVE stamps are my favorites, and Number 2, they remind me of my Aunt Janice who always send letters with the perfect stamp! :)

To make the cookies:

  1. Using a #2 tip, outline square cookies a little inside the border in white icing.
  2. Change to a #1 tip and pipe a small, filled, scalloped a stamp.
  3. In red icing, pipe a heart in the middle of the square. (AmeriColor Super Red)
  4. Thin red and pink icing to syrup-like consistency and cover with a damp dishtowel. Let sit, stir gently with a rubber spatula to pop air bubbles. (AmeriColor Deep Pink)
  5. Pour thinned icing into squeeze bottles and fill in heart in red and pink for background color. Use a toothpick to spread icing.
  6. Let dry overnight.
  7. With a black food coloring pen, write "Love" and the postage price. :) (AmeriColor Gourmet Writer pens)

Anyone planning to make cookies for Valentine's Day? I'd love to hear your ideas and see your pictures!
