Having a teenage girl means every day there is something new that sparks her interest. I was trying to come up with a good hand crafted Valentine she could give out and I remembered, she loves cute sweet treat icons like donuts, ice cream etc. I decided to make these treat themed sugar cookies.
This idea sparked from my recent adventures at the Bash conference where I found myself among some really talented ladies (and gentleman). This conference inspired me to get more creative with my crafts and recipes for the blog. So much so that I figured that I could decorate some sugar cookies with some pretty frosting.
I made these cookies and they came out great but nothing like some of these Cookie Gurus. Cookie making is actually harder than one thinks when you have to actually think about what the end result will look like.
Valentine Sugar Cookie Gifts
- A good sugar cookie cutout recipe
- Royal Icing recipe
- Cookie cutters like this Ice Cream Cookie Cutter, Cupcake/Muffin Cookie Cutter or this Wilton Comfort Grip Round Cookie Cutter (see how you can make the donuts below).
The how to:
Bake the cookies according to the directions. For the donuts, I used the larger circle then a small cordial glass to cut the inner circle. Frost the cookies then package them up to pair with the printables!
I printed these on plain cardstock and sticker paper! I also used clear boxes, twine, white window bags and paper cookie bags.

Of course, you don’t have to give all the goodies away. Enjoy some cookies for yourself!
