Conversation Heart Sugar Cookies
Happy Valentine’s Day!!
You know I love any excuse to decorate some cute sugar cookies and Valentine’s Day is no exception. Back in grade school Valentine’s Day meant filling out Valentine’s cards for classmates and eating ungodly amounts of conversation hearts. They were the “it” Valentine candy. Would a boy give you one that said “Cutie”, “Be Mine” or “Let’s Kiss”? It was anyone’s guess and 10-year old girls’ hearts were aflutter with all the possibilities that the day could bring. Fast forward a couple of decades and I decided a throwback was in order.
I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe and decorated with royal icing (see links for both below under ‘Resources’). I stuck with some of the classic phrases, although forgot on some of them that the words are usually always stacked. Oops! Some details on the tips I used:
♥ I outlined the hearts with a #2 decorating tip.
♥ I piped the words with a #1 decorating tip.
My Valentine more than approved of these cookies :)
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day holiday and enjoy some extra-special love and attention today!

What did you all use to do the writing with. Did you use royal icing. I did and it was all runny. I love the red lettering you used how did you do that? I just can’t figure it out
Hi Tonya, I did use royal icing. Just make sure that you get the consistency right!
Has anyone actually eaten these and tried them?
FYI: Your beautiful heart sugar cookie image is being used to sell products on Etsy. Store is Mariescookiesandmore and can be found at https://www.etsy.com/listing/122215718/sugar-cookies?ref=shop_home_active
I thought you could contact the store owner or Etsy to resolve this issue.
oh my goodness, i loooove these! how cute! i’m not all that into baking but i’d have a blast making these! nice to have found your blog! now following.
Way better than the candies!
Decorating cookies like that takes some serious talent! Great job :-)
I really REALLY wish my cookies came out like this!!! I used your recipe and tips to make the football jersey cookies with royal icing for a Super Bowl party…and I definitely think it’s going to take more practice. Everyone loved the cookies but they looked like they were iced by a child, haha. Practice makes perfect I suppose…absolutely beautiful cookies!
Aw! These are so sweet. Wish I had such a steady hand with the icing! Hope you had a great Valentine’s Day.
You’re bringing new to old school – love it!
Your icing decorating is perfect! Very nice!
Aww these are so pretty! Happy V Day! :)
These are GORGEOUS! :) LOVE THE <3's! :)
Absolutely adorable, prefect handwriting!
Gotta love a good throw-back! These are SO cute!
Very cute! Love the throwback cookies
These are fantastic, Michelle! My kids have been enjoying sifting through their conversation hearts and finding the ones that amuse them the most. They would love these cookies.
Lovely cookies and your *printing* is awesome as are your colour choices.
Adorable cookies! I was going to make some just like this for today, and ended up entertaining uninvited guests all weekend instead. Enjoy some for me!
Love them! So adorable!!!! Thanks for sharing :)
Wow, these look great! It seems so simple which means it isn’t (for someone like me atleast :)). Whenever I see things like this it reminds me how terrible I am at decorating anything :).
These are so much fun! Love ’em!
Aww, these are so sweet!
So cute….I had something similar on my mind:)
This has to be the cutest Valentine’s day cookie idea ever!
Something to feed your chocolate/peanut butter addiction. I am making these today for my husband, who shares your love. :)
Aww, these are so cute! I remember those love heart sweets, I wish people still gave these around :)
These are gorgeous! I would gladly take one of these cookies over thousands of the little candy pieces. :)
Those cookies look delish! Perfect handwriting!
Love these, especially “You Rock!” I had cookies all made to make conversation hearts last night and NEVER got to them. :)
How cute ever :)
I love them all !
Love these, I had a friend pass out little bags of these yesterday and I thought they are just the cutest cookies ever!
I love the messages!
“you rock” !!
I simply must make these next year. You forgot one… I saw this last year on a conversation heart: “Tweet Me!”
Super cute cookies! Happy Valentine’s Day!
What size cookies are these? 2″? 3″? I know you can make them in all sizes, just wondered what size yours are.
So, so cute!
Thank you! They are 3-inch cookies across the widest part.
These look so great! I really need to get #1 tip (probably more than one, and some more #2 tips as well) My letters looked really garbled with a number 2 tip. I’m going to need a lot of practice to get mine looking as nice as yours, no matter what tip I use!
These came out awesome!
These cookies are simply lovely! I adore them!
Sugar cookies are my hubby’s favorite, and he asks for them often, yet I end up making something for the kids instead. I think I’m headed here…to tell him how much I love him. Thanks for the cute idea!
happy v.day michelle!
you rock your posts!
Love these! They’re on my agenda for next year.
These are so beautiful, Michelle! Such intricate writing you did on them, too. Great job and thanks for sharing! Happy Valentine’s Day!
