Strawberry Candy Heart Cookies combine three of my favorite things! These yummy cookies also make delicious Valentine’s Day treats!
Ever since I was a kid, Valentine’s Day has been one of my most favorite holidays. Unlike some of the other popular holidays, there isn’t the same pressure to start planning and preparing for it weeks (or even months) in advance.
A simple token or expression of your love for those you care about is sufficient. Whether it’s a handwritten note, a store-bought surprise, or a homemade treat, the focus really is on the meaning not the item.
These Strawberry Candy Heart Cookies are very easy to make and share. They’re a perfect way to show your friends and family you appreciate them.
