Like conversation heart cookies, but you get to make up the sayings! Go ahead ... let it all out!
Some say Valentine's Day is just for the lovers, but why can't the single people have some fun too?
We've all been there. Nothing helps heal a broken heart or being single on the biggest love day of the year like sweets.
So on that note, we're mixing things up a bit with these Broken Heart Cookies, complete with messages that you write yourself.
These cookies will bring a smile to your face and a maybe even few giggles from your friends. Perfect for co-workers, and if you get the nerve to send them to an ex, these delicious bites of sarcasm are easy to make and may even help you get over it. Be careful, though – they're tasty and might get you a date or two despite yourself!
Here's the how-to:
Whip up a batch of Betty Crocker sugar cookies. Follow the directions on the back of the bag.
Roll the dough out.
Cut heart shapes with a cookie cutter.
Then make a little crack halfway down the heart with a sharp knife.
Bake the cookies until the edges are golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
After removing them from the oven, and while they are still hot, reshape a bit if necessary. Allow to cool.
Divide the frosting into separate plastic food bags and add food coloring to each. If you want them to look like conversation heart candy, make the colors yellow, pink, lavender and white. Don't forget red, too, for the writing!
Carefully frost each cookie and allow frosting to set before writing on each.
Then use red icing to write your sentiments. Think opposite of the conversation heart candies – stuff like:
- Single Ladies
- No Way
...or any little pearl of sarcastic wisdom you want to get off your chest!
These are just a whole lot of playful fun. So go ahead and enjoy Valentine's Day ... your way!
