One of my latest Junior League projects was to bake heart-shaped cookies and deliver them to the Ronald McDonald House. I was so happy to bake cookies for the families and hope it warmed their hearts!
I enlisted Kimmie's help on how best to decorate the cookies since hers are always perfect. She suggested using royal icing and investing in squeeze bottles with removable tips. I found the perfect kit at Williams Sonoma. It may state kids on the box, but it was perfect for me :)
I typically do a glaze, but decided to give royal icing a try. Here it is all mixed up in the squeeze bottle and ready to go.
The icing ended up being really thick so I decided to go with a heart design instead of covering the whole cookie. I piped the outline first and went back and did the center heart. Next time I know to thin it out so I can cover the whole cookie smoothly.
I did a few larger hearts as well. Not smooth and perfect, but still cute :)
