Call us old school, but something hand crafted still shows you care more than the latest gadget or flashy greeting card. Custom-decorated cookies are all the rage and we’ve found a way to make them easily at home. A crisp sugar cookie is the canvas for our Love Letter Cookies. A heart-shaped plaque of tinted marzipan sends the message and tastes terrific. We’ve fussed a bit with a little Royal Icing, pearl sugar garnish and a piece of satin ribbon, which is not really necessary. Tuck each cookie into an envelope before “sending.”
We used a favorite sugar cookie recipe but purchased dough would also work well. Make as many or few cookies as you need, freezing the extra dough for another use.
