If it were a perfect world.... I would make fancy cookies for every holiday, but alas- 'tis an imperfect world and not everyone gets to have beautiful cookies!
I need to mention that the last time I attempted to make "spiffy" sugar cookies (with my bestest friend Carrie of course!) we had to make our husbands eat the evidence- it was that bad! This time around I told Carrie, "It's just hearts how hard could it be to make them look cute?!", To which she told me "don't speak too soon". I suppose she's right, the snowflake cookies we attempted to decorate last year looked pretty bad!
Why did I make butterfly shaped cookies for Valentine's Day? Because this my kitchen. And I can. Or maybe because butterflies and hearts make my little fantasy world of awesome cookies a little bit happier?!
