Every year, for decades now, I have been making Valentine's Day sugar cookies. I've had a Valentine cookie cutter of just the right size for most of those years. I dug it out this morning only to find it broken. :-( I already had the dough made up the night before, so I went ahead anyway with a MUCH smaller cookie cutter I had on hand. Unfortunately, these cookies are too small to put the pretty (and tasty) pink icing on. *sigh
My sugar cookie recipe uses only the egg yolks, so I always make a batch of Meringues to use up the egg whites. This time I tinted them pink in honor of the day of romance.
