Valentine's Day Cookies!!
I love my Sunday job more than anyone else in the world! I have the opportunity to make between 200-300 cookies from scratch each week for mass at College of the Holy Cross. I spend almost all day in the kitchen preparing for the 7pm deadline, but I wouldn't change it for anything in the world. Baking has definitely brought out the creative side of me, as I get to pick what ingredients go into the cookies!
This past weekend I made these Valentine's Day inspired cookies. They're just like chocolate covered strawberries, but in cookie form!!
what could be better?
