  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl mixing on medium speed for 4 minutes. (except your food coloring) Note: If icing is not stiff enough add 1/4 Cup powdered sugar.
  2. Spoon the icing into a bowl.
  3. Add several drops of red gel food coloring in the large bowl of icing and stir well to mix the color.
  4. Spoon the red icing into a piping bag with a #2 tip.
  5. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
  6. Free hand draw the tiny red hearts or if needed trace the hearts to the underside of the wax paper to copy with the red icing.
  7. Allow to dry for 5-10 hours.
  8. Cut the wax paper surrounding the hearts into small squares then peel the wax paper away from the back of the heart.
  9. Place the small heart in the bottom of the cookie. If you need it to stick, you can use a bit of the royal icing to "glue" it to the cookie.
  10. Serve and Enjoy!
