We wanted to wish everyone a happy Valentine's Day and share with you the treats we made.
They are soft, frosted sugar cookies. These cookies are very similar to the ones by Loft House that you find at the grocery store (usually decorated according to various holidays). I found the recipe here and followed it pretty closely. The cookies turned out nice and soft and were actually much better than the ones you get at the store.
The cookies were frosted in haste as I was fighting the setting sun. The cookies and their pictures were not that great, but I was really happy with the shots I got of Little Pilot. The sun was just low enough to give that warm glow to the pictures (both pictures came straight out of the camera). Here is a picture of Little Pilot finally getting his hands on a cookie once Mommy finished taking the pictures. I love seeing his chubby fingers and the cookie in the foreground.
Here is another picture of Little Pilot eating his cookie. I think he is just like his daddy going for the icing first. :)
Those are our Valentine's Day treats and some pictures of our favourite Valentine! :)
Happy Valentine's Day!
