I know that chocolate candy is almost the official Valentines Day confection, but for me it's always cut out sugar cookies!
I wish I could tell you what an expert I am at fancy cookie baking, but what you see here is nearly as fancy as it gets. I'm built more for speed! Ha ha!
But I do love their beautiful soft heart shape more than any other. And it may be the one time of year you can detect the smell of sugar cookies baking around here that doesn't actually come from a scented candle! *smile* (My recipe is here.)
Luckily for the less talented among us there are alternatives. One beautiful one is my friend, and young mother of three, Kimberly, and her online cookie business,
This is her Cookie-Of-The-Month, but she also has other darling collections to send you!
Hogs & Kisses . . .
Owl Always Love You . . .
And, I Love EWE . . . SO, SO darling!!!
Kimberly got her start very young at her Southern grandmother's knee, and she has written about her inspiration for baking on her bumble blossom website here.
(And I have known her since she looked like this!)
Hop on over and pay her a visit! She has designs for every occasion. And I know you will love what you see!
One way or the other your Valentine's Day is sure to be sweet!
