For our February 3rd activity we made heart shaped Valentine cookies. I’ve been using an easy No-Chill cutout Sugar Cookie recipe for several years. When I’m ready to make cookies, I’m ready to make cookies. I hate to have to wait for the dough to sit in the fridge. This time I let each one help roll out and cut a portion of the dough.
Then after supper I gave each child a plate with a cookie, some frosting, and the sprinkles of their choice. I have found that right now this works much better than having them frost and decorate all the cookies at once. They love to decorate cookies, but are dying to eat one. They can decorate one every time we eat them. The best part? I don’t have to wonder which set of little grimy hands decorated the cookie I’m eating! Ha!
