Express Yourself with Gullón Valentine’s Cookies

When words aren’t enough to express how you feel, how about saying it through cookies? In this recipe, we show you how you can decorate delicious and nutritious Maria Sugar-Free biscuits with cute letters. Once these are formed, it is up to you to arrange them to form words that say what you mean.

These are the tools you need for this task:

  • Icing piping bag (any good baking supply store has this in stock
  • Whisk
  • Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Wire backing rack

Then, load up on these ingredients:

  • A pack of Gullón Sugar-Free Maria Biscuits
  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 4 teaspoons of milk
  • 4 teaspoons of corn syrup (take note that this is different from the high-fructose kind; we need corn syrup to give a shiny and glossy texture to our decorated biscuits)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Food coloring (we suggest red, pink, and white)

To make the icing, follow these simple steps:

  1. In a bowl, mix the sugar and milk. Stir them together until everything is nice and smooth.
  2. Then, pour the corn syrup and vanilla extract on the sugar and milk mixture until you see that everything is smooth and glossy.
  3. Pour the mixture into separate bowls. On each bowl, add different food colorings.

To set designs on the cookies, here are the easy-to-follow instructions:

  1. Arrange a set of six Gullón Sugar-Free Maria Biscuits on a wire baking rack. Be sure to leave a space between the biscuits to avoid getting mixed together.
  2. Using a spoon, scoop the colored icing mixture into the cookies. Feel free to let the icing drip off the sides to give it a beautiful, homemade look!
  3. Wait for about an hour. Don’t cover the unglazed cookies. Just leave them to dry. Be patient! It’ll be worth the wait!
  4. Once the glaze has dried, put some of the mixture into an icing piping bag. Squeeze the bag while forming a letter or design onto the cookie.
  5. After you’ve finished designing, leave the decorated biscuits to dry overnight.

In the morning, you’ll find that your works of art are hardened and ready to delight. Not only will these biscuits bring a smile to your special someone’s face, but they’ll also enjoy the delicious taste of the icing and, of course, the Gullón Maria Sugar-Free biscuits. — (TGM)
