Time for Valentine's Cookies

 Every year I look forward for the time to make Valentine's Day cookies. This year I have some ideas that I can't wait to put in action.

In this post I am sharing with you some Valentine's Day Cookies I had made in the past and will link the videos so that you can see how I made some of them.

I love to use the wet on wet technique to decorate Valentine's Day cookies. I am not sure why I like this decorating technique so much, maybe it's because you can create several designs with not so much effort and the cookies look really cute and yummy!

Here are some pictures of mini heart cookies made with this technique.

Christmas Crackers Recipe 2020

 Last Christmas a sweet treat stole my heart, not only because it is "Crunchy" but also because we had a wonderful family time making it.  And this year particularly I valued so much the time we spent with our extended family and I like to remember those moments making this recipe once and once again.

You will need to prepare this recipe a day before you will enjoy them, because they need to be in the freezer over night. 

This is what you will need:

I think this year more than other years we would love to send cookies to our family members. So since this year we won't be able to celebrate Christmas together it would be a nice touch to send a little personal gift that will remind them of how much they are loved. The taste of homemade cookies will surely warm up their hearts, and remind them that you are thinking of them.

I have had the blessing of baking a lot of cookies, packing them and shipping them by mail.

It is not super easy and it takes time to pack them correctly, but the work is always worth it!!!

Here are some videos that will show you step by step how I pack the cookies and I also have some of my favorite packaging materials on Amazon. Click HERE

I have been using the corrugated strip for more that 10 years and it is great!


The nesting box idea is great because this assures that the box with your cookies is not going to move at all; it is surrounded with lots of "love cushions", as I like to call them. 

I have been using Priority mail as my preferred carrier and I LOVE that you can get the boxes, tape and other packaging materials for free, you can order them in the USPS website  CLICK HERE and they ship them for free to your house. 

I wish all of you the best of holidays and hopefully my tips will help you deliver all of your cookies without a single scratch or crumble.

Spread the love with your cookies this Christmas!
