Valentine's Cookies

I really enjoy baking and I love making my Grandma's roll out cookies. Each Valentine's I bake and decorate cookies and give them to family, friends, and people the Lord lays on my heart! I like to call it my Love Bake!!! Happy Valentine's Day!


The dough is chilled and ready to be rolled

The flour is down

The rolling pin is ready

A little more rolling

Heart-shaped cookie cutter

Using all the dough I can

So pretty

I make a butter cream frosting and then it's on to the fun part, decorating the cookies

I like being creative and packaging up the cookies with bows and boxes

Ready to be delivered

Thanks JK! I am so forgetful and I can't figure out who you are?!? Please let me know so we keep in touch. Thanks! :)

Oops - sorry, Lara! I didn't even notice that my ID is so anonymous! It's me - Josie Kinmonth. By the way, the cookies are beautiful! I can't seem to bake roll-outs down here in Orlando - too much humidity, I guess. Any advice?

Hey Josie! It is so great to hear from you. :) I had the same problem with roll out cookies in Arizona. It was the altitude and I am sure you are below or at sea level in Florida so that may be causing it. I am not sure what you can do...

How are you and your family? Thanks again for finding my blog. I hope to post something new soon. :)
