Family Features

Treat family, friends and co-workers to something they will all love this Valentine’s Day by making easy and impressive cookies. Start with your favorite roll-out cookie recipe or simply dress up store-bought ones by adding some simple details with icing.

From the cupids at Wilton, here are three ways to leave them smitten with sweets this Valentine’s Day:

Desserts with dimension. Triple your treats by stacking three decorated cookies in different sizes together and attach them with icing.

Complement with color. A simple piping technique looks stunning when piped in different colors on your cookies.

Get to gifting. Wrap your finished treats in a Valentine’s Day treat bag or box.
