Happy Valentines Day!
We're baking up some fun for you today! Yesterday my friends and I got together to make molded cookies for Valentine's Day. We used some of the heart shaped molds I've collected from House on the Hill.
Everyone brought a couple of cookie sheets to the baking party. I made up two batches of chocolate Springerle dough, enough for lots of cookies. There is something addictive about pressing beautiful shapes into the dough.
Flona made my favorite discovery of the day. She used one of my vintage biscuit cutters on a couple of the small round cookies. The trim plus the fluted edge on the cookie was just too sweet! Martha Steward has cookie cutters with fluted edges. They come in many sizes too. I couldn't find them on-line, but click here for another link.
Linda made this one for her husband....as they sail through life together.
Wish you could have been here too! But since my kitchen is very small...I'm sending a part of the party to one lucky winner.
I have an extra mold and would like to give it away.
Leave a comment and I will spin the random number generator. Contest ends Wednesday, Feb. 16th. I will try and send out the prize before leaving for cross stitch market.
Don't forget the Moda Pillow Talk is going on this month. I've been bad about posting visits! But it's never too late to visit any of these gals! The welcome mat is always out.
