Heart Shaped Sugar Cookies As Valentine Gifts For Kids
My husband and I don't make a huge deal of Valentine's Day. We have a nice home-cooked meal with dessert, and we exchange cards and a small gift. Nothing too big.
But I do love sending the kiddles with special things to school for their class!
For Valentine's Day this year they're taking some small heart shaped biscuits in clear bags.
I made small biscuits cause if other kids are like mine, they like to think they have multiples of things, even if they're small!
I used a basic sugar biscuit recipe and white and pink royal icing. I don't own a piping bag so I put the icing into zip loc bags and just snipped a couple of millimetres off one corner. And then I did my dodgy piping! Piping straight is REALLY not something I excel at! LOL
I stamped "Happy Valentine's Day" on some card stock and folded it over the top of some small zip-loc bags, stapling it in place. I have 2-3 biscuits in each bag and they're all set to go to school.
