I have 27 Valentines at work!

There aren’t a lot of ladies at my workplace – typical of the industry I suppose, and I would like to think I play a role in bringing the few of us together every once in a while. A coworker suggested the company “commission” some Valentine themed cookies – and I really couldn’t think of a better way of giving us gals a nice treat for putting up with the stinky boys.

Unfortunately I ran into a problem I’ve had in the last few years – I do not have a large heart-shaped cookie cutter. In the past, I’ve used a plastic stencil to trace & cut out shapes – but this year I decided to freehand the hearts. I think it added some originality and personality to the hearts – no two were alike! (just like in real life, yuk yuk yuk) The recipe was a basic sugar cookie dough and then decorated with pink & white royal icing and Smarties. Each cookie was also personalized with their name written in chocolate. Each cookie was also gifted with some small chocolates or gummies – what a delicious day!

Some photographic evidence…
