I love these cookies! all you need is a basic sugar cookie recipe and a heart shaped cookie cutter.
When you roll out the cookies and cut in hearts, there are a few options for shapes. The easiest is to cut the pointy end off and turn upside down for decorating.
Another way is to leave the whole heart and turn it upside down for panties, and then use the top of the heart opposite itself for bras.
There are 2 different ways to do the frosting.
In the colored cookie version we just added water and lemon extract to powdered sugar, separated into 4 small bowls for 4 colors and used mini decorating spatulas and toothpicks to draw designs.
The second method is the one we used for the white cookies. These were then decorated with edible markers for a bridal shower cookie decorating competition. For this version we made the same powdered sugar and water mix for the fill, but made a second batch of icing with meringue (you can use powdered or fold in beaten egg whites). We piped the stiff batch with the egg whites using a narrow nozzle to outline bras and undies, and then piped the looser icing into the middle and spread with a knife to fill the space in. This method was much less messy and can be done in multiple colors as well.
These were great for the bridal shower as well, because the edible pens made for a no mess, easy clean decorating competition.
