Here is a quick update on the Sugar Heart Cookies I already shared with you last year which I made for "baby shower" / baby visitors. I made the exact cookies again for Valentine's day feeling around the house.
The only difference is the way I decorated the cookies this time. It's difficult for me now days to the things that require focus and artistic skills because my little one is all over the place and I gotta keep tracking her around the house. Luckily I managed to bake during her morning nap after all.
This is the easy sugar icing decor you can make :-) if you don't have much time or you got a baby which requires your attention. I only used a plastic bag, made a small hole in it and used it to make the lines on the cookies. Sprinkling some sweets decor on top. I am sure there are lots of creative ways you guys can come up with using the same recipe.
I hope you guys enjoy it!
