A Sweet Treat For My Sweetheart(s)

Here are some 
Fast and Fun
little
Valentine's Day Cookies.

Want to know HOW EASY these are?

First bake up your favorite drop 
Sugar Cookie Recipe
(I'll share my own later)
As soon as they are done 
pull them out and while they are
still warm press a cookie cutter
1/2 way through the cookie.
You don't want to cut it completely out.
You just want the heart impression.
Sorry-blurry pic-hard to do it
and photograph it at the
same time.
Then take some colored sugar
and sprinkle it into the 
grooves.
It is just as easy to do it 
without the cutter in place.

Make yourself a little sign.
Use a pretty little setup
Watch the smiles!
And now, even though I never thought
I would do this I am sharing
My SECRET SECRET SECRET
drop sugar cookie recipe
when I am in a hurry.
Shhhhhh....don't you DARE tell a soul!
Have a wonderful Sunday
your photo name

  1. I knew you cheated! LOL
    Love the idea...I suppose you could make shamrock cookies with them, too.
    Bet you're tired when those kids leave. Rest up- you got to get better!

  25. beautiful cookies. strange to me how no one has ever commented on how my sugar cookies could all be so perfect and the exact same size...guess they don't know our little secret!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. These are darling, Diana! I have to try this. Sometimes I think Pillsbury and such have perfected our baking recipes, so why not go for it?

    Happy Sunday!

    XO,

  45. Oh Diana, that's so cute! And you could have shared an actual recipe and we never would have known the difference, but you didn't, and that's what we all love about you! The cookies are so cute, and what an easy way to dress them up. I'll bet the grands loved them. As for me, my mouth is watering. :) Have a great day!

  47. Haha...I love this! Especially your secret recipe. I use one of those Betty Crocker mixes to make Peanut Blossoms. They are better than any I ever made from scratch. Your hearts are adorable. :o)

  48. Diana, you are SUCH a hoot! I will never ever tell.
    One Easter my sister insisted I bring my home made bread..I was so overwhelmed that Easter that went out and bought three whole uncut loaves of bread, warmed them a bit, wrapped them in wax paper tucked them in the basket with a little bread board and bread knife and to this day..she doesn't know the bread she raved about was NOT handmade by me! Shhhhh, you won't tell will you?
    BIG hugs,
    Mona
