Pink & Red Filigree cookies

We are now a week into February.  Valentine's Day is just a few days away now and I feel like just yesterday it was New Years!  Valentine's Day will be a little sad for me this year, because it will be our first Valentine's Day since we have been married and we won't see each other.  I am getting a new passport with my married name and he is busy with work, so we will have to celebrate a little late this year.  I hope I at least get some flowers!  We will see... haha!  

I made some "Valentinesy" (yea, I know it's not a word) cookies here with pink and red piped filigree designs.  I love making cookies like this, because they can all be different but still all go together.  Plus I think they look very pretty!

Sometimes I tend to go a little overboard with the piping and do too much (anyone else do this?!  c'mon... I know you do!).  There are times when less really is more, but I am happy with the way these came out.  

I know some people either love Valentine's Day or they hate it.  And a lot of the time your opinion of the holiday has to do with if you are in a relationship or not.  I happen to love it.  I know there are plenty of people who say it is just a Hallmark holiday, but who cares!  It's a day that is totally dedicated to love!  What is better than that?!  Everyone is happy and you can forget about your problems for the day and just focus on the good.  

What do you think of Valentine's Day?!  Love it or hate it?


  1. Wow, these are absolutely gorgeous! I can't believe you piped those designs by hand. That's really amazing. Will you do a tutorial?

  2. Thanks so much! I will definitely do a tutorial for them! Look for it in the beginning of March. I will be very busy the rest of this month! :-)
