Two-Tone Heart Sugar Cookies

Two Tone Heart Sugar Cookies for Valentine's Day

For the first time in years, we have snow!  SNOW!  I know you all are thinking that snow is no big deal.  But for us in the Pacific Northwest, we don’t get it very often, so when we do… it’s awesome!  The kids are outside playing for most of the day, coming in long enough to get into dry clothes, eat a snack and then go out again and play some more.

Snow in the Pacific Northwest also means that everything comes to a screeching halt.  Schools close (yeah), after school classes close, Tae Kwon Do shuts down and most people just hunker down at home.  Which is exactly what we’ve been doing since it started 4 days ago.  Note here, I’m never home for 4 days without a huge list of things to do and places to go.  Never!  It’s given me time to play with my kids, do some craft projects and bake.  Oh yeah.  Bake up a storm!

I wanted to make another Valentine’s Day cookie since we already gobbled up our other Valentine’s Day Sugar Cookies and our White Chocolate M&M Cookie Bars.  And how cute are these?!?!

They are easy and so much fun.  I love how they turned out.

Unfortunately our pink and red look too much alike and don’t have the contrast I was hoping for.  But still fun.

  1. They ARE perfect for Valentine’s Day and you did a BEAUTIFUL job, Erin! I’m glad you and your kids are having fun with all the snow…and baking! Happy Valentine’s Day! (I wish it would snow here!)

  2. We are on the opposite side of the country, the Northeast (Northern NJ)—we have had more than our share of snow this year! About 50 inches all season. That in the beginning of the season was washed out with rain, so we only have about two feet on the ground. …now it is raining! raining!!! So, you had a little of our winter and we are having the Northwest’s rain. Anyway..this is about cookies…love the cookies!
