A Texas Valentine

Valentine's Day...one month away!!! Ladies, start your ovens!
Chances are if you live in Texas, you are a Longhorn or Aggie fan.
These make great gifts for men...nothing too mushy or sweet. Add a college or sports logo to a heart cookie and Valentine's Day is finished. (OK...you may have to make a trip to Victoria's Secret...then it's finished!) ;)

I love this krinkle/scalloped heart cutter!

  1. I was wondering how you did in the contest?

    You're cookies are fantastic. They're not as easy to do as they may look. Many can attest to that fact after trying to decorate sugar cookies this holiday season!

  7. I am going to make Baylor cookies for Britnee and her friends. They will love them! I think I will use pink icing instead of green. That green does not seem right for Valentine's Day.

    How in the world did you not win that contest?!

  9. Bridget -- what color do you use for the maroon? I always end up blending colors to get the right shade.

  10. flourgirl...

    After really stressing myself out trying to mix maroon on my own the first time I needed it, I broke down and bought a bottle of MAROON food coloring. So worth it! Mine is made by AmeriColor.

  12. Do you use the same sugar cookie recipe for all of your cookies or do you change it up? I love how your cookies are thicker than most.

  13. Hi cakeflower!

    Yes, I use the same recipe every time. You can find it under the posts labeled "livestrong." You can change up the recipe with different extracts for fun. :)

  14. Thanks Bridget -- I will pick some up next time I'm in Houston -- we don't have any place that carries Americolor here in Aggieland. You know the shade has to be just right here -- not too purple, not too red. =)

  18. HELP, Bridget! I'm in graduation cookie hell! How/what color combo did you use to make your Aggie maroon? I just tried Wilton burgundy with Americolor black, and it looks like the color of Grimace from McDonald's. Ack! I have to have caps & robes made for a Saturday trip to College Station, and I'm running out of time!

  21. I knew I could find a cookie here you used MAROON!! I am trying to make some football helmets for homecoming party this weekend & need maroon (I'm hoping they'll turn out half as cute as your LSU ones:). I can only find "burgundy" Americolor. Any suggestions? It looks like it will be too pink. Thanks, in advance!!
