The Kingdom Hearts heartless emblem created with chocolate sugar cookies and royal icing.
This Kingdom Heart cookie suggestion comes from Peter R.! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, heart cookie cutters are abound.
Chocolate sugar cookie dough
Black food coloring
Red food coloring
Ingredients for Royal Icing (for a half-dozen large cookies):
4 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons meringue powder
Several tablespoons warm water (4-6)
Large heart cookie cutter
Large star cookie cutter
Preheat oven to 350F.
Roll out your cookie dough to about 1/4″ thickness. You’ll want the cookies pretty thick.
Use the heart and star cookie cutters to cut out the cookies. Cut off two points of the star cookie so it that it fits with the bottom of the heart. Push and slightly mush the two cookie parts together.
Bake cookies for 6-8 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool.
While the cookies are cooling, it’s time to put the royal icing together! Mix together the powdered sugar, meringue powder, and three tablespoons of warm water until the mixture is thick and glossy. Add a touch more warm water if the mixture is too thick. You’ll want a strand of icing to sit on top of the surface for a few seconds.
Scoop 3/4th of the icing into a bowl and add black food coloring. Once the color has been fully incorporated, scoop the icing into a plastic, sealable bag. The rest of the icing should be dyed a nice bright red. Scoop up the red icing into another plastic bag and seal.
Take the black royal icing bag and cut off the end of the bag. Pick out a cookie and outline the cookie in black icing. Fill in the icing outline.
Allow the cookies to sit for several hours, overnight if you can. Royal icing takes a rather long time to dry.
Once the black royal icing has set, take the red icing bag and snip off the end. Outline the cookie with the red icing.
Draw in the criss-cross marks across the heart.
Add the three pointy bits on the crossbars – and two pointy bits turning downward on the lower bars, which I forgot (oop!)
Allow the cookies to set for a few hours.
