Valentine's Day Cookies

I love to bake. Some of my most special memories of my mom are the times when she and I baked together. I'm so happy that I can now pass on my mom's and my passion for baking to my children and others.

For a fun Valentine's Day project, my three favorite little bakers Ethan, Jack and Matthew, helped me make some yummy chocolate sugar cookies.

They cut out heart shaped cookies, but being boys, they insisted that dinosaurs were also perfect for Valentine's Day. I agreed :) I just love these guys!

The cookie recipe we used was from The Food Allergy Mama. They were really good! I asked the boys what kind of plate I should put the cookies on to take a picture and they all thought a heart plate would be the most appropriate. So here's what they came up with:

Kind of cute, huh? More Valentine's Day fun to come soon!
