Valentine's Day Cookies

After being inspired by her and this article in Southern Living, I decided to try to make some Valentine's cookies of my own.  I usually do make heart cookies,  but have been wanting a more "finished" look for them.  I have never used Royal Icing before, but recently read about how versatile it is, so I thought I would give it a try.  How fun!  Here are some pictures of my results.  I am pretty pleased with how they turned out, although I haven't actually tasted them yet.

 

  

I'm also having fun experimenting with my camera!  Happy Valentine's Day!
