Today I wanted to share with you a super cute cookie idea I created using The Cookie Cutter Company cutter, using my favorite shape of all heart. You can do so many things with heart cutter, and it really should be a cookie cutter staple in every kitchen.
To clarify, I first saw this idea over at Simply Bloom and after that I was hooked. I knew I had to make a pug (I’m praying you can see a pug). My friend loves pugs and since they just got a new addition “Violet” for Christmas I thought I’d make her some cookies. I already made her Pug Cookies and a Pop Art Pug Cake in the past and I’m sure one more won’t hurt.

towel to remove any excess water, you want the brush to be just very lightly
damp not wet. This way you can also control the color intensity. Be sure not to make the cookie wet.
