So with Valentine's Day coming up, I wanted to make some cookies just for my growing-up eldest. I needed to avoid this nightmarish scene: he pulls out the lovingly decorated pink heart sugar cookie from his lunchbox and the students at his lunch table chime in with "Awwww, your mommy loves you" said in the most childish voice that they could muster. That would not be good.
* 20+ second white
* 20+ pale yellow (just a little bit)
* 20 second red
* small amounts of brown and green
And some chocolate sprinkles for apple seeds.
I know that my eldest will be delighted when he sees these in his lunchbox. He might even be the envy of the students at his lunch table since he has cool cookies! But deep down he knows that his Mommy made them. Just for him. Because she loves him to his core.
