Happy Valentine’s Day!!

With inspiration from the crossword puzzle cookie I made last year, I decided to keep the fun and games going by making an actual puzzle cookie.

Lesson I learned:  you can’t slice the cookie before you bake it because you may not be able to put it back together.  Yes, I’m reluctantly admitting that I could not put back together my own puzzle.  It was partly because I didn’t lay out the pieces in the heart shape before baking, and also because the cookie pieces spread slightly, leaving the heart a bit out of shape.

Now on to cookie number 2:  I cut out the heart shape (I couldn’t find a cutter that big so I used the trusty Exacto knife), I then traced the letters into the cookie (be careful not to cut all the way through the cookie).  As soon as I pull the cookie out of the oven I cut the puzzle pieces.  It keeps the pieces an accurate size and keeps the puzzle pieces in place.

I had to rush to complete this cookie (it wasn’t for a client; just the blog) so next time I will be more careful with my icing so it won’t run over the sides and the pieces will fit closer together.

I was going title this post ‘Have a Piece of my Heart,’ but that’s too cheesy…even for me.  I’m just going to keep it simple and say ‘Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!’
