Valentine Day Ideas and GIANT Sugar Cookie Recipe :-)

You could start your day out making heart pancakes. This is something so fun and easy and it really impresses the kids', LOL! (The date on my camera was off last year)

Lunch could be a heart shaped sandwich packed in their lunch boxes with a special note from you!!

Aside from the obvious heart shaped cookies, you could do a huge GIANT Sugar Cookie like the one below. BTW, that is my cute little Evan, he was 3 in that picture, awwww, time stops for nobody (sniff sniff)

This year I plan on doing the breakfast and lunch things I mentioned above, with dinner being heart shaped pizzas. I still haven't decided on what the dessert will be yet, will post about it after V-Day!!

Oh, you guys might wanna make that Giant Cookie for your loved ones too! Here is the recipe. Note: if you don't have a heart shaped pan (I have a Wilton one) then you can easily put it on a regular cookie sheet/pizza pan and manually shape it into a heart!

-1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
-1 cup sugar
-1 egg
-1 tsp baking powder
-1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
-1 Tbls milk
-1/2 tsp vanilla
-1/4 tsp salt

Pre-heat oven to 350. Spray pan with PAM. Cream butter and sugar together. Add rest of the ingredients. Mix till smooth. Spread mixture onto pan with floured hands. Prick dough with fork.
Bake 15-20 minutes OR till lightly browned. Place on cooling rack for 5 minutes. Loosen edges with spatula, remove from pan to cool.

Happy Valentine's Day!!
