These cute and delicious Valentines cookies make the perfect gift, baked with love for your special someone, or maybe just for yourself. Check out my top 10 favourites.
Wow, did January just feel like the longest month ever to you? It did for me. It's felt as if every time I thought February was here it inched a little bit further away from me. But it's finally here, and I'm so excited.
Not only does February herald the arrival of Spring bulbs starting to pop up in the garden, it means 'Shrove Tuesday', an excuse to eat plenty of pancakes and 'Valentines Day' an excuse to eat plenty of special treats because of love!
This year we'll be spending Valentines in New York, cue squeals of excitement for frosty walks in Central Park, sunset views from the top of the Empire State Building and breaking my new sugar-free way for everything that NYC has to offer in the cakes, bakes and patisserie department. Milk Bar Store and Supermoon Bakehouse, I am coming for you!
Bake from the Heart
But let's get back to Valentines. In all honesty we really don't go all out and celebrate. He loves me, I love him, we have our own ways of showing it. He puts the dustbins out and does the washing on a Saturday morning before I get up. I make the bed, pick his clothes off the floor, empty the dishwasher etc etc. You know all those things we take for granted that each other does, and that they are actually things we do for the other because we love them.
So as I won't be baking any treats for him this year, I decided to round up some of my favourite, cute and delicious Valentines cookies, with the added bonus that they're all nice and easy to make. Go ahead and check them out.
