It's Not Valentine's without Cookies!

Valentine's Day is one of those holidays like Christmas.  It just begs to make cookies.
My Mom got us this Snow Globe cookie baking kit on Christmas clearance.
We decided to repurpose it for Valentine's cookies.
I saved the cookie cutter for future snow globe and/or fortune teller ball cookies.
We discovered four heart cookie cutters in my cookie cutter stash.  Not sure why I had so many.  After rolling, cutter, and cooking the cookies, we made the frosting and iced them.
Pierce handled the snowflake sprinkles.  Snowflake sprinkles can double as heart lace, you see.
For the first time, I think he got more sprinkles on cookies than in his mouth. 

Next for Pierce's favorite part - painting the cookies.
He loves these edible paints that come in the cookie kits. 

The finished products: 

Ha, well, turns out that they tasted better than they looked: 

Linking this post up today with JDaniel4sMom's Valentine's Party Week.  Go check her out for more great Valentines ideas:

Happy weekend!

we make my grama's rice-krispy bar recipe, add red food color so they're pink and make them into heart shapes .... it's a super fun and yummy tradition, actually doing that this morning : ) happy valentine's day!
