How to decorate bite-size hugs and kisses cookies with Xs and Os for Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day cookies
These hugs and kisses cookies for Valentine’s Day are super tiny bite size cookies, so perfect for snacking or portion control. I used little square and circle fondant cutters. Package in little jars, mint tins or cellophane bags. They are just so cute, I kind of hope someone will make them for ME this Valentine’s Day, sigh.

how to make hugs and kisses cookies
you will need:*
cut out cookie dough
pink food coloring
red food coloring
square fondant cutter (about 1/2 inch)
circle fondant cutter (about 1/2 inch)
2 disposable frosting bags
2 rubber bands
2 size “3” tips
*Find the cutters, bags, couplers and tips in the baking aisle of the craft store. You can find concentrated pastes there, too, though I use the harder-to-find Americolor soft gel pastes (Red Red and Electric Pink). Click on the link to find information on how to buy.

step one: make your cookies
Prepare dough and refrigerate according to recipe. Roll out and cut out squares and circles with the fondant cutter and bake according to the recipe. Let cool completely.
step two: decorate your cookies
Tint some of the frosting red and some pink. Prepare two frosting bags with the couplers and size “3” tips. Fill one with red and one with pink; tie closed with rubber bands. Pipe “X” on the square and “O” on the circle. Let dry overnight if packaging.
step three: package your cookies
Package in any cute container you like!
