I love making cookies at home, and for this time i decided to make a valentine day themed cookies....!! :)
Love cookies are really crisp and crumbly,a bit chewy at center.These are simple butter cookies with a candy glass center.
i admit that i struggled a lot to find red colored hard boiled sugar candies...but nothing is impossible..i finally found some red lollipops.. :P
These little adorable cookies would make a lovely gift for your special someone this v-day..! ;)
so are you ready to jump into the ocean of love this valentine season..?? :D
