My bf and I have been together almost 6 years (yowza!), so that means we’ve already experienced most of the generic Valentine’s Day requirements, like expensive pre-fixed dinners, bouquets of flowers, a surprise date to a beautiful outdoor ice skating rink where he forgets to bring a pair of socks for you to ice skate in (and you’re randomly sockless that night because you wanted to look extra cute and wear heels) because who remembers socks when you’re trying to plan surprise dates??? Ya, that happened.
So now we keep it simple for Valentine’s Day. A witty card, a sweet note, gifts in the form of food…that’s all we need! So I made these sugar cookies, recipe courtesy of Pioneer Woman, and tied them up with baker’s twine because honestly, what says I love you more than a delicious, heart-shaped cookie?
