Blog Hearts with Strawberry Glaze

Valentine's Day is known to many as a day where people show there love for one another by giving flowers, cards, or small gifts. Or in the case of my son, a stuffed gorilla that moves around singing love machine!

The heart is the shape most recognized on this holiday and what a better way to spend Valentine's Day with your loved ones than by making some heart shaped cookies.

One of our staff members did just that and shared her pictures along with a fantastic strawberry icing recipe. We think it's a keeper!
