Marbled Sugar Heart Cookies
Decorating cookies can be intimidating. If you’ve never used a piping bag or made your own royal icing, the idea of making beautiful, intricate decorated cookies may sound enticing, but prove to be much more complicated than expected. We wanted to create a cookie design that even beginner decorators (and kids!) could easily accomplish. Let me introduce you to Marbled Heart Cookies.These simple Marbled Heart Cookies are a great introduction to the art of cookie decorating; they don’t require any special supplies or equipment (no piping bags necessary) and, aside from the baking itself, require very little time. We use 4 different icing colors in these cookies, but another great virtue of this recipe is its potential for customization. You can use any combination of colors you’d like, or even cut the cookies into a completely different shape. We love these pink and purple hearts for Valentine’s Day, but with this simple technique, you can make orange marbled pumpkins for Halloween or green marbled clovers for St. Patrick’s Day.
