How charming are these easy brushstroke sugar cookies for Valentine’s Day?! They use the classic sugar cookie recipe with a fondant topping and then they’re brushed lightly with a gel paste! Incredibly simple to make and even more fun to decorate… we broke out some brushes and felt very artistic creating brush strokes with food coloring! If you’re not a fan of fondant, you can do a royal icing that hardens too.
We used the same heart-shaped cookie cutter to make the hearts and to cut out the fondant. Try to roll out the fondant to be a very thin layer.
Add a little bit of butter cream frosting on the cookie before you lay the fondant over it. This will allow the fondant to stick to the cookie.
