This two colored Valentine cookie is pretty and very easy to make.
Besides two colors of royal icing, you also need two cookie cutters to make them — a large cutter of your choice for the base cookie (I used a plaque-shaped one) and a smaller heart cutter.
I chose to fill the heart with a fuschia colored icing but pink or red would also look great.
This design once again proves to me that it's often the simplest ones that look the best. And, getting a perfect shaped heart in the center of the cookie was no problem because I made a guide to follow by using the heart cookie cutter to make an indentation before baking.

|Immediately fill in the heart with the color of your choice. I chose fuschia. Let the cookie dry completely before packaging.|
I happen to have a small bee cutter and wouldn't a "Bee Mine" Valentine cookie be sweet?
