We are back with more baking! This time Mandy and I baked some cute hello kitty cookies. Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, this Hello Kitty Cookie is perfect to be one of the Valentine Cookies to bake for. Not only that the cookies are cute, they actually taste very good too. My kids love them so much.
Not forgetting to make some Sweet Heart Sugar Cubes for Valentine’s Day. This duo will make a perfect tea time or coffee time for all darling occasions to celebrate.
We baked them with 2 types of Hello Kitty cookie cutters; a cutter with a facial stamping set and the other one is over-the-rim coffee cup cookie cutter.
The cookies are pretty easy and quick to bake and you can use other shapes of cookie cutters too. I put a link on the recipe section below where you can buy the Hello Kitty cookie cutters with facial stamping set from Amazon. However, besides Hellow Kitty, you can use another equivalent cookie cutter of your choice that you can find from your local shop.
I especially amazed by the cuteness of the cookie hanging over the rim of the coffee cup. Though we used a special cookie cutter that came with a notch design, you can DIY yours too. If you can’t find one that has a notch in it, you may simply cut the notch from the cookie dough with a knife.

Other names of the cutter are: cup adorning cookie cutters, notched cookie cutters, over the rim cookie cutters, coffee cup cookie cutters, over the edge cookie cutters.
