When my kids were little, I made Valentine’s Day cookies every year. I guess I’ve slacked off now that they are older, but my youngest, even at 17, still loves baking with me. I’m hanging on to that as long as I can, so this year, we will be baking and decorating cookies!
February 14th is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect holiday for making sweet treats. Cookies are a great dessert option any time of the year, but you can take plain cookies to the next level by simply adding a theme. Holidays make choosing a theme easy.
Baking and decorating cookies for Valentine’s Day is a fun activity for the whole family. Get your kids involved and have them help make and decorate the cookies. Yes, they will make a mess. But trust me when I say you will treasure those times when they are off on their own. Enjoy it while you can.
Kids aren’t the only ones who will love this special dessert. Make a batch of cookies for your significant other, or even for a neighbor who lives alone and could use some cheering up. Few gifts show your love more than one that is homemade.
