Creating the Perfect Icing Grids for the Cookies

If you’re looking for a unique way to spruce up your Valentine’s Day cookies, why not try making a tic tac toe game out of them? It’s easy to do and results in some delicious-looking cookies that your family will love. The first step is to trace a grid with black detail icing. After that, you can draw hearts with pink detail icing and Xs with red detail icing. Once you’ve finished decorating the cookies, let them dry completely before handling. You can also create a game board by using Ghiradelli wafers or decorating graham cracker squares with icing. Either way, this fun activity will make your Valentine’s Day cookie decorating even more special!

How to Make the Perfect X and O Cookies

Making the perfect X and O cookies starts with the right ingredients. Our recipe for sugar cookies is a great place to start. The dough can be split up into as many different bunches as you would like different colors, and then colored accordingly. If you prefer, you can use a small round or heart shaped cutter to make circles or hearts, and then add the X's and O's yourself. For the icing, you can find recipes for sugar cookies and royal icing below. To make it easier, watch the video tutorial on how to decorate these festive Tic Tac Toe Valentines Cookies. Once the cookies are cooled and covered with white filler, you can use cookie cutters to make X's and O's shapes. Make sure to find the right size cookie cutters to get the desired shapes. Finally, add some fun with gummies or candy melts to make it even more special.

Make it a Fun Activity with the Kids

Making these cookies with the kids is a great way to involve them in the Valentine's Day festivities. Not only do they get an activity to do, but they also get a delicious treat in the end. They can have fun making their own X and O cookies and then play the classic game with their creations. It's a great way to spend quality time with your kids and make sure they are part of the holiday spirit.
