Adorable new cookie cutter set to make a one of a kind cookie for Valentine’s Day. This will be a fun baking project, (especially for kids!), as you can personalize them to make them unique. Have fun – use icing writers to doodle names, messages, or drawings!
Puzzle cookies are easy to make and fun to give as treats to children. We made these puzzle cookies using our No Fail Sugar Cookie Recipe, which you can find under RECIPES at the bottom of our Home Page. Make the dough and cut out the heart puzzle shapes using the Heart Puzzle Cookie Cutters.
NOTE: If you want the pieces to fit together- Leave each cut heart of dough positioned together to bake–do not separate the puzzle pieces. Immediately after the cookies are removed from the oven, use the Heart Puzzle Cutters to recut the puzzle pieces on each side of the heart. Gently wiggle the cutter when re-cutting the dough to make sure you have well cut pieces. Allow to cool.
Make the dough and cut out the rectangle puzzle shapes using the our Toast Puzzle Cutter. Leave each cut rectangle of dough positioned together to bake–do not separate the puzzle pieces. Immediately after the cookies are removed from the oven, use the Toast Puzzle Cutter to recut the puzzle pieces in each rectangle. Gently wiggle the cutter when re-cutting the dough to make sure you have well cut pieces. Allow to cool. Preparing the wafer paper: Using the Toast Cutter, carefully trace the interior shape of the puzzle pieces onto the Valentine Card image you wish to use. Use a non-leaded pencil to do this. Cut out the puzzle pieces with craft scissors. Frost your cookie with a smooth coat of royal icing and allow to dry. If you are unsure of the right consistency for the royal icing, please read our tips under the How-To section at the bottom of our Homepage. The royal icing must be completely dry for best results. Simply spread a thin layer of clear writing gel to the back of your wafer paper pieces and then “glue” the wafer paper to the cookie, image right side up! To ensure a smooth finish, turn the cookie over, wafer paper side down, on a piece of parchment paper for approximately 30 minutes. To completely dry, turn the cookie design side up for 12 hours. You can add a 3 dimensional effect by adding small sugar pearls, dragees, sugar decorations or edible glitter. To adhere, just use a small dot of clear writing gel.
