Happy Valentine’s Day!


Those who know me best also know that I don’t need another cookie cutter added to my collection.

I resisted purchasing this large cookie cutter twice but the third time I came across it, it followed me home…after paying for it of course!

It’s been a long time tradition to bake Valentine cookies every year, one I intend to keep for as long as I can.  Although many of the children I’ve made Valentine Cookies for over the years are now full grown adults, cookies have a way of finding that inner child that never goes away.

With a little imagination and my Pinwheel Cookie recipe I’ve come up with what I call “The Little Family Valentine Cookie.”

Daddy’s heart is the big white one, mommy’s heart rests in daddy’s heart and baby’s hearts are the ones tugging on the “heart strings.”

I just knew that cookie cutter had potential!

More Valentine goodies…

These were made using the Pinwheel Cookie recipe.

      Oh dear…I would have never entertained the thought!
      Hope you calmed down after having a bite or two.
      They are tasty aren’t they?

      You know the white heart has quickly realized that these Valentine Cookies were born out of his favourite Pinwheel Cookie recipe…good luck!
