Happy Valentine's Day

heart shaped cookies  

Heart shaped sugar cookies, using Alton Brown's good and easy recipe. The icing is something I developed while making iced cookies for a vegan friend. I believe it looks and tastes virtually the same as traditional "royal icing," but skips the egg whites. Simply mix 3 cups powdered sugar, 2 drops of vanilla, and a quarter cup boiling water (add more sugar or water as needed for proper consistency). Make it fancy with food coloring & sprinkles. Have a sweet day!
