There are a lot of veritable cookie artists out there; I am not one of them. I was on pinterest.com the other day exploring food ideas, and there were a ton of beautiful, gorgeous Valentine’s Day desserts and cookies. Trouble is, I just don’t have the time or the talent to recreate them! But I love Valentine’s Day, so I just had to come up with a fun cookie idea to share with you!
I happened to have some fresh baked sugar cookies:
So I simply iced them:
And then started brainstorming ideas for simple decorating. Almond slices made a sweet little heart:
Mini-chocolate chips created the boys’ favorite:
And simply heating some strawberry jam and placing it on top of the icing and then pulling a toothpick through it created my favorite:
When you see them all together, they almost look like art, no?
Life is sweet!
