Who says gingerbread is only for Christmas. I love gingerbread and this recipe is perfect for soft yummy cookies. I bought these awesome heart shaped cookie cutters and they came in a variety of sizes. I adore the mini heart cookie cutter.
I used my favorite gingerbread cookie recipe, the same I used for some other recent favorites like the skeleton gingerbread men I made for Halloween. I made the dough and refrigerated it and then after the dough chilled for about 2-3 hours we had some fun cutting out the cookies.
After we cut out the cookies, we placed them in the oven for about 8-10 minutes.
I used the Wilton Icing Pens to decorate the cookies once they cooled off.
Have a sweet Valentine's Day.
