Sweet Suzy Q Cookies

It’s that time of year again where there are hearts and flowers, red, pink and white all over every store enticing folks to get a little something for their sweetheart.  With this in mind, Suzy Q and I decided to whip up some Valentine’s Day cookies as a preview.  We stuck with a simple color scheme of red, white and pinks.  Using our standard Sugar Cookie Recipe we opted to add a little bit of red food coloring to give the vanilla cookies a pink hue.  Now if you know me, you know that I love chocolate, the richer the better.  While our recipe is pretty great for a sugar cookie, I wanted to try this amazing brownie cookie that Suzy Q made for me many years ago.  It is so dense and rich in flavor, it did not disappoint and was exactly as I remembered.  Don’t worry I will post that recipe soon with some tips and tricks for the dough, as it holds it’s shape better than most chocolate cookies.  We also added some fun critters in the mix too. Enjoy!

I’m a huge lover of owls and Suzy Q tried her hand at a hedgehog, isn’t she fun?

These large hearts are over 4″ wide and are great for a cookie to be the focal point of your platter; however, it is very difficult to get the centers cooked and the edges not burnt.  What we opted to do is use a small cutter to take out the dough in the middle and that helped the cookie bake evenly without any burnt edges.  The cookie on the bottom that looks whole, is actually a brownie cookie with a vanilla heart put in the center after they had both cooked and cooled.  This allowed for the visual of a solid cookie and a little added flavor in the taste.

And because we know not everyone is a fan of February 14th, Suzy Q made a “Bite Me” cookie.  We have a few ideas for Anti-Valentine’s platters, stay tuned!
