Glazed Heart Sugar Cookies

Love is in the air and apparently in my kitchen too!  I have been feeling very inspired by this lovely holiday approaching us.  It's just around the corner and what better way then to experiment in my kitchen will a rollable sugar cookie mix that's easy to make and fun to decorate?  If you check in my blog archives or blog index you will see that I have already written a post about 1-2-3 Gluten Free Mixes.  These mixes are fantastic.  All I had to add was eggs and oil.  Until I found this mix I had never been able to use cookie cutters while baking gluten-free.  This made me so happy.  I used Lindsay's Lipsmackin Sugar Cookie Mix and was happily surprised when they tasted as good as they looked!

I decided to make heart shaped sandwich cookies and made royal icing from scratch.  I piped the royal icing over each cookie like strands of white delicate string hugging the cookie.  This was so much fun to make and so easy.  Check out these awesome mixes!

 Out of the oven they came...ready to dry on the rack before being iced...

With a paper towel to catch the mess and a pastry bag to pipe the icing...

1-2-3 Gluten-Free Heart shaped cookies were made...

With the finished product drying and almost ready to be packaged
