Red velvet cookies heart shaped; These easy cookies are sandwiched with chocolate frosting. A perfect Valentine treat! Red Velvet Cookies heart shaped.
Red Velvet is all the rage these days, but I want you to know that when I was a kid, my mom would make Red Velvet Cake for special occasions. Red velvet cake was all I knew, I could never have conceived of red velvet cookies, pancakes, crepes, fudge, brownies, dips, or any of the hundreds of other amazing creations I have seen lately.
My mom even had a heart shaped cake pan, and sometimes we would have a beautiful, heart shaped red velvet cake with pink frosting on Valentines Day.
My mom is kind of the best that way. She’s great at making holidays fun, and giving little gifts she knows you’ll enjoy.
I haven’t decided yet whether I’ll go all out on a big red velvet cake for my kids this year. I’m pretty lazy, after all. Maybe I’ll tell them that only kids with good grades get red velvet cake.
Or maybe I’ll tell them that only adults get red velvet cake. That’s even better.
I already know this Valentines Day is going to be a good one, because I get to celebrate it with my blog buds! We’re back!
