Tip: use a tub of prepared vanilla cake frosting. If you want pink, add a few drops of red food coloring and mix it through. I covered a few of the big cookies with white frosting, and then added the food coloring to do the little ones with pink. After I frosted each one, I just decorated it with pretty Valentine sprinkles !

The day that I baked these Valentine cookies, I also made some Snowman Cookies. Directions for making the snowman cookies plus a party idea and some baking tips here...
