Church was canceled on Valentine's Eve due to dangerous parking lot conditions. Ever since the big new law office opened up by the highway, we've been a bit more cautious about having little old ladies with hip bones made of chalk ice skating to and from their cars. We've also stopped having the Scissors relay race in Sunday school.
Well, since we ended up being home on Wednesday night, it seemed like a great opportunity to bake about INFINITY heart-shaped sugar cookies. The girls did a fantastic job. Shelby took a bunch of mini-heart cookies to school and impressed her friends; they really did look like professional cookies from a real professional cookie store. I think the key is the icing which ends up hardening well and looking glossy and super cool. You'll have to ask my wife for the recipe.
I hate to be critical, but my only concern is what I saw on the counter before they started:
It's not uncommon for us to be short on ingredients and have to figure out different substitutions, like trying to make cookies without baking soda or sugar or flour.
But for the life of me, I truly can't imagine what the Clorox Disinfecting Kitchen Cleaner is a substitute for in the sugar cookie recipe.
If you are among the lucky recipients of our yummy disinfected Valentine's cookies, enjoy!
