Vanilla sugar cookies with Nesquik Strawberry Milkshake icing and various sprinkles. For Valentines Day to show my love for my family, friends and all of you on DA
I always use the recipe from the BBC for making cookies that I will be cutting out shapes with at it keeps the shape perfectly while baking [link]
it makes a lot of cookie dough, so what I don't use I just freeze for another day.
The icing is icing sugar (powdered/confectioners sugar) milkshake powder and just enough water to make a paste that can be cut out with cutters.
These were so much fun to make. Of the dough I used I split in two, half for me to cut out and decorate and half for my youngest daughter Sasha to do the same with. I got to say I was very impressed with how well she did for her age, she is a natural.
The photo itself I thought just had to match our chaotic baking session with all the added accessories of table cloths, napkins, sprinkles and spare cookies (my kitchen was a complete mess!)
