My favorite Valentine’s Day cookies! And a Valentine’s Day cookie hack (after the holiday baking season, I am ready for an easy holiday no bake Valentines’ Day cookie!) Very easy to make no bake Valentine’s Day cookies perfect to make for the classroom or holiday party.
In a perfect world, I’d be happily ingredient shopping, merrily making and lovingly baking with of course a well worn family gingerbread cookie recipe to make these Valentine’s Day Gingerbread Cookies. Then there is reality.
Sometimes time is at such a premium that you have to call in the easy Valentine snack or Valentine’s Day hack (and use up the extra package of gingerbread cookies from Christmas!) And so the idea for the Valentine Hack for Valentine’s Day Gingerbread Cookies was born.
Three store bought ingredients and you are good to go!
How To Make Valentine’s Day Gingerbread Cookies
Pepperidge Farm Home Style Gingerman cookies
Valentine decorative hearts (large hearts)
Store bought frosting or homemade cookie icing
- I’d say self explanatory. Buy, unpackage, icing and decorate!
- But … remove cookies from bag (opening the bag is the most time consuming part!)
- Make your (my favorite!) cookie icing or purchase store bought frosting.
- Dot icing on cookie for desired heart placement. If desired use a cookie decorating bag to make the dot.
- Decorating Tip! Use a thicker icing as you are essentially gluing the large hearts onto the cookie.
- Attach heart (s) by pressing gently onto the icing dots.
- Let the icing set.
