We had so much fun at Christmas with our Elf Quote sugar cookies that we had to do it again! I figured Valentine’s Day would be the perfect opportunity to get wordy on some heart-shaped cookies, so these Conversation Heart Sugar Cookies were born! I went a little hog wild making up phrases or putting our favorite lyrics on them…
And just in case Valentine’s Day isn’t your thing, we made a few cranky ones. Because “Bye Felicia” should definitely be on a conversation heart somewhere in the world.
If you want to make these bad boys, follow our tutorial for our Elf Quote cookies! Be sure to read it thoroughly – there are lots of tips and tricks for getting the cookies just right. It’s the exact same process with the exact same materials. If you’d like to replicate our colors, use the food coloring on that ingredients list and separate the dough into quarters. We colored each quarter differently with these drop amounts:
- pale pink = 1 drop pink
- bright pink = 6 drops pink
- lavender = 4 drops purple
- blue = 1 drop green, 4 drops blue
Then go to town with your cookie imprinting set and make them say whatever you want! This would actually be a super fun thing to do at a Valentine’s (or Galentine’s!) party. You could do it with kids, too — set up the cookies and let them stamp words to their hearts’ content.
Hope you try some of these bad boys! If you do, share ’em on Instagram with #thelovelysquad so we can see whether you love or hate Valentine’s Day. Ha! xoxo
