Valentine’s Day Sugar Cookies

When I lived in Kansas City I used to get sugar cookies almost every week form Blue Chip Cookies and Ice cream. Since I moved to San Diego I have been trying different recipes, and so far this is the best one. This is not the same type of cookie that I used to get at Blue Chip Cookies and Ice Cream… but they are delicious and I thought it was worth for me to share.

Also, Valentine’s day is another opportunity to show appreciation to family, friends, and coworkers of their love, friendship, and work. I made these cookies to share with friends and coworkers. maybe you will be inspired and also bake some for your loved ones.

    I really like it when people get together and share views.

    Great blog, continue the good work! Its such as you learn my thoughts!
    You appear to grasp a lot about this, like you wrote the guide in it or
    something. I believe that you just can do with a few percent to power the message home a little bit,
    however instead of that, that is wonderful blog. A great read.

    I will certainly be back. Howdy just wanted to give
    you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running
    off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a
    format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but
    I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos
