Happy Valentine's Day!

When I saw these cookies on Pinterest, I knew that I had to make them. The only addition I made to the situation was to add a dinosaur. Because, you know, they make everything better.


This was a new sugar cookie recipe to me, and I'm sure I'll be using it again. The cookies kept their shape well after baking, which is an important consideration when your dinosaur has so many spikes.


The frosting recipe was also slightly new to me. I hadn't used meringue powder, and appreciated how it made the frosting a bit stiffer (those spikes you know...)


These cookies have definitely brightened my day and my afternoon tea time. Are you up to anything special in the kitchen, for Valentine's Day, or just because?
