Glass Topper Valentines Cookies & a Party!

Today is a fun day!

Not only did I make heart shaped cookies with a straw hole…I KNOW…I am participating in a whole Valentine’s party.

Yep, that’s right…when your husband doesn’t get you anything for Valentines, you must turn to your friends and pressure them into filling the void, which is exactly what I have done.

So stay tuned at the end of this post and check out what some of the most creative ladies out there have come up with.  Really, really cute stuff.

 

But first I must share my treat with you.

It’s a simple concept, really.  Milk and cookies.

They are besties.  Like me and Sephora.  BFF.

I used my favorite cut out sugar cookie recipe and made heart shaped cookies.  The recipe makes about 24 large cut out cookies, just to give you an idea.  If your cutter is smaller than 3″, you might be able to half the recipe.

When the cookies came out of the oven and cooled for 15-20 minutes I cut out the hole in the center.  I did it after I baked, because although the recipe doesn’t spread much when baking I wanted to make sure I had a clean hole in the middle…

I used a 5/8″ round cutter, that typically is used for fondant.  If you don’t have a small circular (or flower/square) cutter, you could certainly use a paring knife, just be very careful not to crack your cookie.

Once you have your centers cut out you will need to make your pourable glaze icing.

I chose to use a pourable icing because I am lazy and didn’t want to decorate cookies.  The truth will set you free.

Here what I did…I mixed up the glaze.  The consistency will be like a think syrup.

Next up add a little food coloring.  Whatever color you want.  I used pink, duh.

When I mixed it up I let the icing sit for about 5 minutes until all the little air bubbles came up to the surface.  Then I gave it a gentle stir to pop the bubbles before I poured the icing on my cookies.

I set up my pouring station like this…a wire rack on a bowl to catch the dripping and another wire rack with a piece of parchment under it to catch more drips.

I did them one at a time, spooning the icing on and making sure it dripped over coating the sides as well as the top.  The extra dripped into my bowl, which I was able to recycle and use again.

When the majority had dripped off I transferred the cookie with a spatula to my other wire rack.

I let my cookies dry overnight, but if you are in a dry climate they might be dry in less time.

Now, if you would like to go the extra mile and make your straws look like little arrows, it’s a simple process.

You will need:

  • construction paper
  • straws
  • tape

Cut your construction paper in shapes like this, about 1 1/2″ in length…

Snip the edges like a feather on the end of the arrow.

Place you straw in the middle of the arrow, leaving enough room at the top to drink from and tape it on…

That’s it!  Aren’t they cute?  I got my straws HERE.

When your cookies are dry you can assemble your little bottles.

I actually used Starbucks Frappuccino bottles.  I peeled the labels off and washed them hot, soapy water.

How easy is that?

Now, here’s the fun part!
