Happy Valentines Day!

Hello ;) Happy Valentines Day!
Monsters LOVE love, and cookies, so we thought we would
incorporate the two and make some homemade valentines ;)
So I took my basic cookie recipe, and then drove ALL over Red Deer, looking for 'valentines smarties', - red and pink ones. But I could only find teeny tiny boxes, so I bought a huge bulk bag and picked out the blue, green, and brown ;)
Mix up the dough, add the smarties, I think I used about 3 cups.
Now, make LARGE cookies. I think these were about 1/3 of a cup in size,
6 to a pan. Bake about 15 minutes, or until golden brown, and cool.
While you cookies are baking / cooling, get crafty! I used cardstock, stamps, string, hole punch, and some paper cd cases. Put a piece of colored cardstock in the cd case to make it more sturdy, and then make any type of little tag to decorate the case.
Insert cookie, wrap with string, tie on tag, and voila!
Yummy, awesome, homemade valentines ;)
