My oldest daughter volunteered to bake 100 Valentine cookies for a bake sale at her school. She had told me that they had to have pink icing. I love to bake, but I am not the greatest decorator and the thought of piping icing on 100 cookies had me break out in hives before we even started. I suggested to drizzle the icing, but that did not fly. Luckily I found these instructions where you spread the icing with the back of a spoon. It is not perfect, but much prettier than spreading it with a palette knife and much quicker than piping.
In the end we baked and decorated 150 cookies. (I wanted to have some leftover, but I guess I went a bit overboard…) It took us from start to finish 4 hours and 6 batches of this recipe.
