Valentine Cookies!

It's that time again! Valentine's Day is almost here and I thought I would indulge myself by baking up some of my favorite things: HEARTS! I really like the scalloped edge cookie cutters! These are my big(4"x5") cookies:)
There are so many FABULOUS cookie artists blogging about and I so enjoy looking at all of their creative creations! There is some AMAZING talent out there!
Case in point: I took the idea for these cookie bites from HERE: Meaghan of "the decorated cookie" is full of great ideas! These are a little different because they are bite size (about 1 inch) cookies which are so easy to whip out en masse, and a cinch to decorate! I love the adorable size of these "hugs and kisses!" Thanks for the fun idea Meaghan! You could pop these into your mouth just like popcorn. Of course, you might as well make some bite-size popcorn cookies for that, also found at "the decorated cookie." :)


One batch of dough made about 150 of these cookies:)
Hey, you could even play a game of tic-tac-toe before eating them!
Some "hugs and kisses" all ready for a special Valentine:)
