Since my days are usually quite busy, I actually had to schedule in time to bake cookies for Valentine's Day. Monday was a snow day, so I thought it would be the perfect time to make sugar cookies for the children to decorate. I blocked off the time between 3:00pm and 5:00pm to bake these cookies, so that they would be cool enough to decorate either before or after dinner.
Come 3 o'clock, I started to get everything ready. I had the refrigerated cookie dough, 2 cans of frosting, pink and white sprinkles, chocolate sprinkles, and 3 anxious children. The only thing I could not find were the cookie cutters. My cousin had given me a huge tub of cookie cutters that covered every occasion. I remember giving the tub to my husband to store away for me since I did not have room in the kitchen cabinets, but I could not recall where he ended up putting them. By now, the time was ticking away.
Then I saw my heart and bear-shaped sandwich cutters sitting in the drying rack and thought to myself, "Why not?" The heart sandwich cutter turned out to work great! From now on, I'm just going to buy sandwich cutters since they are the perfect size for sandwiches and cookies. Why spend the extra money on cookie cutters, when sandwich cutters can do both jobs?
No, I didn't have time to try out the teddy bear sandwich cutter, but definitely will next time.
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
