Hey guys,

I'm throwing a friend a bridal shower and have taken up cake/cookie decorating in the past month or so. I want to make heart shaped cookies on a stick to give out as party favors. I will probably be using royal icing on them since they dry harder. I'm looking a for a recipe that you guys have used and love since this will be the first time I am doing something like this. I don't want the cookies to be too hard and I still want them to taste great. Please share any recipes or tips you may have so it will go well.

Check out the NFSC recipe on here.
NO Fail Sugar Cookie
It is soft(I cut mine about 1/4" deep or thicker if you want a softer cookie) and holds any cookie cutter shape really well. It is one of the most saved recipes on here.

the dark chocolate rolled cookie recipe here on cc tastes fabulous and bakes super well (holds shape and stays flat). you can also add extracts to it for flavor combos (i love to add either coconut or banana).

I agree - I love the NFSC recipe! Here are links to a few other recipes that a lot of cookie decorators on CC use...

Since this is your first foray into the world of cookies, these links might also be helpful. Antonia74's article is fantastic!! And her royal icing recipe is a godsend!!

Any cookie recipe with the word "rolled" in it will work. You can flavor them to your hearts content and they won't spread and puff like a sugar cookie will.

I highly recommend the No Fail Sugar Cookie (NFSC). Holds its shape well. I usually add grated orange zest for a little twist. Antonia74's icing is very good too. Good luck.
