These gluten free conversation heart cookies are the perfect Valentine’s Day treat. There’s also an easy video tutorial so you can see just how easy it is to decorate them!
You guys, I am NOT a cookie decorator. I’ve said it a million times with my cakes, but my piping skills are mediocre – I am far from a professional. Which is exactly why I wanted to share these cookies with you.
I have been trying to step up my decorating game lately because, hello food blog. I need to keep learning new skills, which isn’t a bad thing. Especially when that means I need to keep making cookies or cakes to practice on 😉
My daughter’s pre-k class was having a little K-I-S-S celebration (Kids Invite Someone Special) aka a Valentine’s Day party. I like to use her school parties as a way to practice. Usually I make cupcakes but this time I thought I’d challenge myself with iced sugar cookies.
These gluten free conversation heart cookies are a great place to start. First of all, they look incredible. Second of all, they’re really not difficult at all. It’s a great way to practice making your icing dam and then flooding it. That’s as far as you go with these cookies since the words are actually written with an edible marker rather than piped on.
Do yourself a favor and don’t go crazy with a hard design if you’re just starting out. These are easy enough to make and hone that basic step. Check out the video I made to show you just how easy it really is – plus you’ll score major points because of how adorable these cookies are. I mean, these are way better than real conversation hearts 👌🏼
