My Sweet Valentine *^^*

This recipe, “Holiday Sugar Cookies”, is from Joanne Chang’s flour cookbook. My own twist was to use concentrated hibiscus tea as my food coloring, which resulted in a lavender color once it was mixed with the powdered sugar. Unfortunately, I used an entire 16-oz bag of overpriced organic powdered sugar, but found that using a third or half of it would have sufficed. Tant pis!
BUT, I really loved the outcome because the cookie wasn’t rock hard. These were much softer and a bit crumblier, which I really liked. However, the absolute BEST part of these cookies was that the most unlikely thing happened: the spouse helped to decorate MOST of them and thoroughly had a lot of fun doing it! We were up until 2am getting them done so that I could take them to work in the morning for Valentine’s Day. We made somewhere close to 80 cookies.
