A Labor Of Love

My husband, Jerry, loves sweets. As a special surprise for Valentine's Day, I decided to make him his favorite homemade sugar cookies today. In fact, he loves them so much, we call them Jerry's Sugar Cookies.


I made a double batch. I've got plenty of trays, so I rolled and cut out all the cookies before I even turned on the oven. Here's a shot of the cookies all cut and decorated waiting to be baked.


TaDa...The finished product. I only encountered one casualty - a minor burn. And I over browned only one pan which happened when I decided to call my friend, Bobbie, and got distracted at the very end. This is definitely a labor of love as it took me the better part of the afternoon. No wonder so many of us remember our grammas with such respect and love!


HAPPY VALENTINES DAY EVERYBODY! I hope it's sweet!
