edible cookie boxes for valentine's day

Instructions

  • Prepare your favorite sugar cookie dough
  • Lightly dust your surface with flour and roll out dough to 1⁄4 inch thickness.
  • Using the rolling pin I linked to above or if you are using a different rolling pin, use two skewers on either side of the dough to ensure evenly shaped cookies.
  • Using 2 different heart shaped cutters cut out twice as many full heart cookies as the double cut out heart shape.
  • To create the double heart cut out, use two identical shapes but two different sizes.
  • Place cut out cookie dough on parchment lined baking sheets and bake for 12 mins in a 350 degree oven.
  • Let cookies cool on baking sheet until fully cool (about 30-45 mins)
  • Prepare 1⁄2 of the royal icing recipe.
  • The icing should be the consistency of the thick pourable elmers glue.
  • Use a piping bag or sandwich sized ziplock bag cut a medium sized hole in the tip once you are ready to glue the pieces together,
  • For the stand sized heart shaped box, glue one full heart to one cut out heart.
  • Remove any exposed wet icing in the center and let dry for at least 45min-60 min.
  • For a taller cookie box glue two of the cutout cookie shapes instead of just one.
  • Decorate the top of your box.
  • You can spread icing on the top one of the full heart shaped cookies with your finger and dip into a bowl of sprinkles.
  • Once the cookie bottoms have dried, fill the open cavity with sprinkles.
  • Place the top cookie onto the bottom ones. You can either seal them with icing or not seal them. Both are still a lovely display.

Notes:

As a word of caution, if the cookie boxes are stood up or laid on their side some of the smaller sprinkles may escape through a hole.

If sealing the top to the cook box, cut open with a sharp knife to see the sprinkles flow out or bite into the cookie “sandwich” for a Sprinkled surprise.
