Vintage Brassieres, Anatomical Hearts and Other Cool Cookies for Valentine’s

Even if you don’t think The Anatomical Heart is the coolest cookie name ever–it makes us think of this excellent Edgar Allen Poe story–you have to be impressed with the intricacy of Amelia Coulter’s icing art. We like her cookies so much we made the ones she does of Brooklyn ironwork our Winter 2009 cover–when we wrote about SugarBuilt, her cookie company, for the first time. These Valentine’s-inspired versions are bizcochito flavored–anise, orange and cinnamon–and are topped with vanilla icing and individually wrapped with ribbon.
