Cookie Wednesday: Valentine's Day Edition

Cookie Wednesday 
Valentine's Day Edition

Today's edition of Cookie Wednesday is all about LOVE.  And who better to share the baking love with then my babies and my sweet husband.  We all crammed into the kitchen and got busy baking.

Kyle wanted to make his favorite cookies Candy Cane Cookies and I wanted to make heart shaped cookies.  So we got creative and came up with these adorable cookies. 
Just make your favorite, nut free cookies(nuts probably won't cut nicely with the cookie cutter), as a bar by pressing the dough into a greased baking sheet and bake.  Once the cookies are baked just take your cookie cutters and cut out the cookies.  Allow the cookies cool a few minutes before removing to a cooling rack.  
Once they had cooled, we decorated them with melted candy.  That's it!  But have all those left over cookie bits.  Here is my husband's creative solution that I LOVE!

How The Cookie Crumbles

* Crumble the cookies on a wax paper lined baking sheet.
* Melt Candy Melts
* Drizzle candy over cookies and decorate with colored sugars, jimmies, whatever!
* Allow to set until hard
* Break up and place in an air tight storage container to enjoy later.
Happy Baking!
