As you can probably guess, I’m not really into Valentine’s day, but when I saw the gorgeous heart cookies on Anh’s blog, I just had to make them. Then, as I was surfing for cookie recipes, I found oh-too-cute holiday ice box cookies on Martha Stewart. The recipe there mentions that the ice box cookies are just prettified sugar cookies, so I used my own go-to sugar cookie recipe (the recipe that came out of the box of Star Wars cookie cutters from Williams Sonoma).
In case you're wondering what those flecks in the cookie are, I replaced about 1/3 of the plain flour with wholemeal flour.
I can’t wait to experiment with more patterns and words, and one day hopefully when I haven’t got computer fatigue, I’ll even try to put together a tutorial on how I did the words. In the meantime here’s a rough drawing of how I did the letters “M” and “I” and hopefully you can figure out the rest.
Have a great start to the week and Malaysian Monday will appear soon (hopefully). My pal Suresh from 3 Hungry Tummies will be hosting the next round-up, so please send your entries to sureshchong(at)yahoo(dot)com.
