Be My Valentine

These are pictures of cookies I made for some families in stepford for Valentine's day. I'm feeling more comfortable with piping, and even used colored sugar on some.

It had been a while since I made some decorated cookies, so overall I was pleased with the final products appearance-wise. (couldn't taste anything cause I gave up desserts for Lent)

Also note that I experimented with chocolate-dipped cookies. I used the cheap 'bark' that they sell in the store, but enhanced the chocolate taste by adding in chocolate morsels to the double boiler. not sure if it was the bark/chocolate ratio, it being applied to the cookies, or just the humidity here in general, but the chocolate never seemed to set all that well.

For these valentine gifts, each kid received their respective letter, decorated especially for them.
