When there is a good excuse to decorate cookies, count me in. I used a basic roll cookie recipe that I found in The Joy of Cooking. My grandmother had two copies and sent me one of them. Apparently it belonged to her sister. I love that it’s been passed down in the family and every so often, I uncover little notes that my great aunt left to herself about a recipe. The icing is store bought decorative icing. Whats your favorite Valentine’s greeting?
