Since Valentine’s Day is on Monday, I bet lots of you will be doing something fun this weekend! If you want a little somin-somin to do with your little one’s there’s a yummy sugar cookie & icing recipe at the end of this post! Want something easier? How about cupcakes? A (store-bought) strawberry cake mix and a simple butter-cream frosting is as easy as it gets!
Don’t forget the sprinkles !
For these cookies I used a Sugar Cookie recipe I found in the book Cookie Craft…
(¼ teaspoon Almond extract, I don’t use this but some people love it!)
Put XXX sugar in a bowl and add milk…stir until smooth…
Beat in corn syrup until icing is smooth and glossy~if it’s too thick, add more corn syrup! Divide and add food coloring. You can make this the night before, just cover it!
Each cookie needs to be decorated with sprinkles immediately after you ice it because it dries to the touch pretty quickly. The icing takes a few hours to completely set.
I made about 60 sugar cookies (the size of my hand) and used 9 recipes of the icing with a bit left over.
Have the sweetest of weekends my friends…
