Ingredients

Sugar Cookies

  • 170 g butter
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Royal icing

  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • 2 egg whites separate when cold, then bring to room temperature
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Food dye

Instructions

Sugar Cookies

  • Cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.
  • Beat in eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Pat the ball of dough into a flat disc, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least one hour (or overnight).
  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Roll out dough until 1/2 - 1cm thick. I like to roll between 2 sheets of baking paper so that the dough doesn't stick, and no additional flour is incorporated into the dough.
  • Cut into heart shapes using your cookie cutters.
  • Place cookies 3cm apart on cookie sheets lining with baking paper.
  • Bake for around 8 minutes until lightly golden.
  • Allow to cool completely before icing.

Royal icing

  • Lightly whisk egg whites and lemon juice together in a bowl.
  • Gradually add in icing sugar, whisking until combined and silky smooth.

To decorate

  • Divide the royal icing into 5 small bowls.
  • Add a few drops of your selected food dye to each bowl and stir until the desired colour is achieved.
  • Transfer about 2 tbsp of the first colour into a zip lock bag with the corner snipped off.
  • Pipe outlines around the edges of your cookies. Repeat this with all the colours, until each heart is outlined. Allow to set (by the time I finished the final outlines, the first cookies I piped were already set).
  • Now we need to thin the icing to fill the cookies. Add 1/2 tsp of water to each bowl and stir until the icing runs smoothly off the back of a spoon.
  • Carefully fill each cookie up to the outline. Allow to set for at least an hour.
  • Select your favourite decorating pen and pipe your chosen lyrics onto the cookies.
  • Give to your bae!
