How to Make a Valentine Cookies Box

Equipment

To make your edible cookie boxes, you will need the following:

Ingredients

Instructions

Prepare your favorite sugar cookie dough in a mixing bowl.

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 until golden brown.

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.
