Red Velvet Valentines - the cookie kind that is!
I found this great recipe in the February 2017 Better Homes and Gardens magazine. They are really quick and easy to make. I got out all of my heart cookie cutters and decided to use this ~2" one that was my mothers.
Several of these got eaten right off the rack! Just to be sure they were ok of course. The recipe made a whopping 50 cookies!
Now the fun of decorating them with Powdered (Confectioners) Sugar. I got out two stencils I use making cards - and made a big heart mask with card stock and a heart punch!
I laid a stencil over a cookie, held my sieve with the powdered sugar over it and tapped the sieve.
Beautiful results! My stencils are from MFT and no longer available - but here is another heart stencil from MFT.
Any stencil will do - or you can make your own mask by punching a shape!
Here it is with the sugar sifted over it.
And all the festive Valentine Cookies - ready to be enjoyed! I'm going to bring some of these to my Bible Study Group tomorrow and some to the grands when I babysit on Friday!

A fun and festive YUMMY treat for Valentines!
