Valentine's Red Velvet Fondant Covered Sparkly Lip Cookies


So here's what I decided to do with that red velvet fondant I created two weeks ago. Sparkly lip cookies of course! I've created lip shaped marshmallows and meringues for past Valentine's Day posts. It was time to create a cookie.


To start, I played recipe roulette with the internet for rollout cookie inspiration and settled on a chocolate mocha flavor. Specifically,  this one from the Whole Foods Market website. The dough is very crumbly and hard to work with but it produces a flavorful cookie. You can use your favorite rollout cookie recipe.


I cut out the lip shapes out of both the cookie dough and red velvet fondant. When the cookies were cooled, I adhered the fondant lip shapes to the cookies with some leftover royal icing.



Using a small paring knife I made a line impression to split the lip shape in two and then made wrinkle marks on both sides to make the lips look more realistic.


I finished the cookies off with a coating of disco dust and was super happy with the result. These are unusual in both taste and appearance. A perfect, flavorful Mad Hausfrau Valentine's Day treat.



HAPPY VALENTINES' DAY!
