it's that time of the year again, hearts and sweets for your sweeties. We only had one set of cards to do this year, our third grader decided that we should make some cookies to include with his cards. What a cute idea. While perusing the internet for a simple cookie recipe that would look cute and easy for him to tackle, we found a simple Icebox Cookie recipe from Joy of Baking.com. We had all the ingredients except for the candied red cherries, I looked all over town for those cherries, usually they are in an abundant supply right before the Christmas holiday for baking the infamous fruitcakes. Now in February, none can be found, so another internet search on what to substitute for the red cherries. I happen to find a recipe for making your own red glace cherries from a jar of maraschino cherries.
Just sharing some photos of how his cookies and cards turned out.
Happy Valentine's Day!
