      I made these cookies for Valentines day and for a baby shower. I bought heart cutouts for valentines day and added pink sugar crystals and I bought various cookie cutters related to a new baby and added blue crystals. This was a hit at the party! Everyone wanted the recipe, meanwhile it was my first time making it. They came out so perfect and the recipe is so simple. Thanks!
