Sugar Cookies For My Valentines

I make sugar cookies for just about every occasion. My daughter had a friend over on Saturday, so it was the perfect opportunity for some cookie decorating.

I didn’t have any pink or purple sanding sugar on hand, and of course the girls only wanted pink and purple. I usually buy my sanding sugar from Williams Sonoma, because I love the bright colors. With a little sugar, food coloring, and an empty Ziploc, I made my own sanding sugar and it turned out great.

A cup of sugar and one or two drops of food coloring is all you need. Shake it all together, in a Ziploc, until there are no lumps of color.

My color wasn’t as vivid at the color from Williams Sonoma, but it sure was less expensive!

Here’s the recipe for the sugar cookies, if you haven’t seen it before.

Happy baking!
Happy Valentine’s Day too!
