So I caved into societal pressure and got all Valentines-y this week. No, I didn't buy chocolate (that comes after Saturday when the chocolates go on sale everywhere). I decided to make heart-shaped cookies. Call me crazy. I even spent a whole 99 cents on a heart-shaped cookie cutter! Go me!
The recipe I used was the Cocoa Sugar Cookies from Canadian Living. You may recall that I used this recipe at Christmas, when I made these cookies. It was a very smart move for me to purchase red and white sprinkles at Christmas time because they can also be used at Valentine's Day. Again, go me!
For the icing, I had a bunch of cream cheese icing (recipe here) left over from my brother's grad cake, which I made last April (icing freezes well, though this got a little lumpy upon thawing). What can I say? I don't like throwing things away! In the end, I got unpretty but quite delicious cookies to share with my family this weekend.
