Valentine Cookies

I feel a definite need for some lighter subject matter after my last blog post. Something I find very therapeutic myself is baking cookies, especially if the Princess is by my side.

Since it's officially February (can you believe it?) I thought we'd try out a Valentine recipe. This time I did make the recipe just as listed, and they had a very nice flavor. These are relatively easy for the kids to make. I used the Pink frosting (referenced in the recipe) to top these with, but be sure to read the comments concerning the salt and such. Overall, I was quite happy with how they turned out. Here's the link: Easy Valentine Sandwich Cookies. *EDIT: The red drizzle is from chocolate candy melts. I thought it added a nice touch.
EDIT: So I thought it was the first day of February today... my family will eat them anyway:)

Lucky nursery workers... I just might sneak in there myself... of course, they'd probably snag me to actually work in there... just how good are those cookies? Are they worth the risk? ;)

Thank you Marva for your sweet words. I know you've had a few of those days yourself. And you're right, sometimes it helps just to talk it out.

I would not advise you to stick your head in the nursery. It is a vortex that will suck you in and never spit you out.

Love the cookies especially the double layer one. Those are so fun to make. I mean this as a compliment but I have noticed your baking getting better in this last year. Not that it was bad before but you are paying more attention to detail than you used to. Oh forget it, just say I think this looks nice.
