Happy Valentine’s Day!
So you didn’t have time to bake and decorate a cake or cupcakes? Or even dozens of cookies? No problem! There’s still time to whip up a sweet treat.
You can make this deliciously big Valentine’s Day Heart Cookie in no time and have it ready before your little loves get home from school. Enjoy it plain or have your kiddos decorate their own slices for an added bit of fun!
Even if you don’t have a heart-shaped pan, a round pizza pan works; then go crazy with the Valentine’s sprinkles and candy. Or you can fashion a heart shape out of tin foil and lay on a pan and bake as directed.
Also, did you know that February is Heart Month? Just one more reason to share the love.
