We have a tradition in our family of baking Valentine’s Day sugar cookies that are divine! I just made a batch last night, and some very lucky little kiddos have them in their lunches today. I thought you might like the recipe, too!
My mom always made them every Valentine’s Day and sent them in our lunches to school. She also baked and frosted extras for our friends. Pink, heart-shaped cookies are one of my favorite Valentine’s Day memories!
As all of us “kids” got older, went off to college, and go jobs, she would always tell me, my brother, and our friends that if we wanted our cookies, we needed to come see her and pick them up! It was such a fun way for her to get all the big kids to come visit.
I now make these pretty pink cookies for my kids every Valentine’s Day, and I wanted to share it with you. (Feel free to sub your own ingredients as needed.)
Happy Valentine’s Day, Kindred Spirits!
