Coffee Cookies-We’re the Perfect Blend!

I love my husband! He takes me to Starbucks for coffee at least once a week and we both get googly eyed and look madly deeply into to our cell phones! You thought I was going to say eyes didn’t you?

We're the Perfect Blend ValentineWell, it works for us! He plays games and I text like a teenager. If that does’t say we are the perfect blend then, nothing w

Royal Icing Recipe

I wanted mocha cookies so I used Created by Diane’s  Peppermint Mocha Cut out Cookies. Since it is Valentine’s Day, I decided not to add the peppermint. They are really good if you want to give them try.

Coffee CookiesI will admit it, I hand cut these. I don’t like it one bit but, since I was only making a few, it didn’t kill me. I have great news for you though, Klickitat Street made some coffee cup cookies and she was way smarter then me! Check out how she used a cupcake cutter and a wedding cake cutter to make two different to go coffee cups. She is so smart!

With the tan outline icing, outline the cozy part of the cookie.
Then, with the white icing, outline the lid.

The Perfect Blend CookiesNext, with the red outline icing, outline the cup.

How to stop Icing from BleedingI have a tip to help reduce the icing from bleeding. When you outline the red, leave a very small space between it and the other colors. Try to get it as close as possible so it won’t look bad but, your cookie will be safe from bleeding. This won’t work for all designs but, it  works for this cookie.

The Perfect Blend CookiesNext, with the tan flood icing, flood the cozy. Since your icing isn’t touching, you can go ahead and flood the rest of the cookie without waiting for it to dry.

Starbucks Coffee Cookies With the red flood icing, flood the cup.
Then, flood the rest of the lid with the white icing.
Now let this dry for about an hour or so before you start the burlap cozy.

Coffee Shop CookiesThe inspiration for this burlap came from Callye from Sweet Sugar Belle. I had a cow when I saw these Burlap Bunny Cookies! I knew I wanted to make something burlap someday and today is that day.

Valentine's Day Cookies

Coffee Cozy CookieWhen you are done, it will look like this. I want to make everything burlap now. I promise, I will try to restrain myself.

All you need to finish are a royal icing button and flower. You should make these ahead of time so they will be ready when you make the cookies. For a royal icing tutorial, click here. Ali Bee’s Bake Shop has a great ribbon rose tutorial here. Just make it as big as you want and attach it to the burlap.

Coffee Bean CookiesNow for the coffee beans. I found a circle the size I wanted and smooched it.
Outline and flood the bean in 2 parts. The good thing about these is, they don’t need to be the same. Have fun with them.

Coffee Bean CoffeeI told my hubby how much I love him now it is time for me to tell you! I love ya more than coffee! And that is a lot baby! Happy Valentine’s Day!
