We've changed our recipe for Chocolate chip Cookies this week. Not a big change, but after 20 years, things needed tweaked. So we increased the brown sugar and lowered the white. Increased the eggs and lowered the oven temperature. The result: thicker, chunkier softer and moister. Still crispy on the edges, I think this one is something special.

Gourmet Valentine's Day cookie delivery

Love the colors of blue and white for these wintery mittens. We have snow on the ground for days now, so pretty and I know I'm not in the majority of people who feel so, but I think Winter should actually be cold with snow. So I'm happy these last few days. Usually in the Pittsburgh PA area, it snows then warms up and thaws with rain. This pattern repeats itself until we are left lots of potholes and no snow. So this year is different and feels right to me. I'm even wearing a scarf to work this year. And to make it even better, scarves are popular now so that I've got many colors to choose from!
But back to cookie baking. We outlined these sugar cookies with a border of light blue piping, then flooded with thinner icing and finished the details with white piping. I'm not sure why blue and white seem so perfect for the winter, but I think they are a very cute and heart-warming cookie.

Valentine's Sugar Cookies with conversation messages were very popular last year as a cute and fun Valentine's Day gift. We like the traditional messages like be mine, say yes, cutie pie etc but this year I'd like to add some new ones. Short and cute but I think we'll be able to update some of the sayings. Text me? Follow me? We'll think of some in time for February 14th.
