Gingerbread Hearts cookies & milk, valentine cookie treat, valentine's day

My little one and I wanted to bake some cookies today so I thought it would be fun to give them a little Valentine’s spin and share this easy but adorable cookie Valentine tutorial with you! I used to love baking cookies from scratch but these days I don’t always have the time so I often grab a package of “ready-to-bake” cookies at the grocery. This pack of gingerbread cookies has been delicious and great for baking just a few at a time. Which also means there are fewer cookies sitting around begging to be munched on!

Gingerbread Hearts cookies & milk, valentine cookie treat, valentine's day, how-to make heart cookiesThe secret to making these little guys is to cut them with a small heart cookie cutter immediately when they come out of the oven {photos 1 & 2} Then cut a little slit in the base of the heart so they will hang on the rim of your glass {photo 3}.
