Some people don't love Valentines day.
Me - I'm all for it, although I guess waiting for a certain day to express your love does seem a bit odd. I'm really more a every day should be filled with hearts and love kinda girl.
Take for example these cookies, I would happily eat them any time of the year.
But they do make a sweet little display, which if your into the whole Valentines day thing is perfect :)
I make these cookies all the time, they are a favorite of the kids, we just like to mix it up and decorate them differently.
The design and recipe is based on the Sweetheart cookie pops from Sweets on a Stick (details below).
And of course you don't need to pop them on a stick, they are just as sweet if you make them as regular cookies.
