Happy Healthy Holidays!
This pretty bouquet of crunchy candy cookies will please every Valentines palate and heart. If you'd like, you can just create individual flowers to give as gifts.
1 package ready made sugar cookie dough
Heart shaped cookie cutters
Twelve, 12-inch wooden skewers
1 container ready made pink or white frosting
1 bag M and Ms Milk Chocolate Candies for the Holidays
1 bag Skittles Bite Size Candies Fun Size for Valentine's Day
Pink or Red Cellophane or Tissue Paper (optional)
Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 1/4-inch. Cut into heart shapes using cookie cutters.
Before baking, take small dough balls (1/2-inch) and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Set the skewers on top of the balls. Flatten the balls and place heart-shaped dough on top of the skewers.
Bake for seven to nine minutes.
After baking, frost cookies with ready-made pink or white frosting and decorate with M and Ms Milk Chocolate Candies for the Holidays and Skittles Bite Size Candies Fun Size for Valentine's Day.
Arrange cookies in a long-stem flower box, wrap loosely with red tissue and cellophane and tie with ribbon. Tie a gift tag to the bouquet if desired.
Yield: 1 package.
