The love starts with a mom and daughter date, a classic Martha Stewart sugar cookie recipe (which I can not find on her site, but it came with a cookie cutter eons ago).
The recipe includes lemon juice and zest...fresh from the backyard.
Add inherited cookie cutters, thank you Grandma Gill.
Spend the evening chatting with a friend and cut out hundreds of teeny tiny cookies.
Sprinkle some hearts with beet colored sugars...no red food dye for me.
Bake. Chat. Bake.
Oops, set timer.
Eat. Share. Eat.
Hold the love.
See the love.
Taste the love.
Cookies to share.
