Happy Valentines weekend! I’m hoping you can stay for a while. ..♡

                                       Because I’ve planned a special day of sweet baking.

There’s still plenty of time to bake up a little sweet lovely treat.

Do you have your apron on?

Oh, no worries…we can wait…

Isn’t this fun. ..♡

And, let’s not worry about making a sweet mess. Sweet messes are the best. ♡

Cookie Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon lemon zest
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

Frosting Ingredients

1 bag Wilton Pink Candy Melts
assorted sprinkles to decorate

Directions: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream butter & sugar in a large bowl. Add lemon zest and blend well. With mixer on low speed, add flour a little at a time.  Dough will be crumbly, so dump it out onto a counter top or pastry board and work it together by hand until smooth.  Pat or roll dough out into a rectangle that is about 1/2″ thick. Cut into desired shapes.  Arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake 20-25 minutes until bottom edges are just starting to brown.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes then remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

To Decorate

Melt pink candy melts in a microwave on 50% power until soft, then stir to combine, (or use a water bath.) using a palette knife, spread some “frosting” on lower half of cookies.  Decorate with sprinkles of choice. Let frosting set before attaching ribbon.
